We are in the process of lifting our house. Our home has a 5 ft frost wall so we are lifting it 4 ft.  There is weeping tile on the inside perimeter and a t-junction leading to
the outside. When we dig down into the basement floor, we get water (only on half the basement. The ground is composed of clay with a layer of coarse gravel on top. We would like some suggestions/help to move this water out before we lay our pad, to prevent future problems.

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

There might be a footing dividing the two halves.
