Here's a project that went bad. Let me explain. In the spring we usually have a wet basement floor. Comes in where the floor and wall meet. This fall we had a major plumbing job done. We had to cut a slot in the floor 14 inches wide by 25 feet long, right down the middle of the basement, had to put in a new sewage pipe. The big problem now is where the new concrete and old concrete floor meet I have water coming up at an alarming rate! There is no visible seam or crack, it just keeps coming up through. This may be a long shot but is there a product I can put on the area to seal it? These past couple of days have been very long and tiring trying to keep up vacuuming the water. What a mess. Oh and we have 2 sump pumps, they are working fine. Help in Tillsonburg! And by the way this is quite the forum, impressive.
Regards ... Franko

Sounds like the drainage system (weeping tiles) are not functioning fully and water is building up under the floor. You either need to replace the existing tiles on the exterior or do the Interior Weeping Tile proceedure. No sealing treatment will work. Sorry about that.
We will be offering a new service this summer that will flush out existing tile systems. THough it will need to be done every 4 years to keep them clear.


Not you average basement repair contractor.
