I have a stone and rock foundation which leaks on one side of the house.  I just recently dug along the foundation about one foot down and two feet wide to pour concrete.  I made sure to angle the concrete away from the foundation.  Well it just rained and the basement leak again along the wall and floor inside the house, it actually pour in.  Will I have to dig deeper to get further down along the foundation to pour more concrete or is there something else maybe put a pipe to lead the water away.  Can you help

I believe you will need a waterproof membrane to extend from the grade line to down below the floor level on the exterior. At a level below the floor, you will need a drain tile to collect the water. You will Then need to direct the drain tile into a sump system so you can eject it from the house. This is a typical weeping tile installation with a membrane. Be very carefull to never dig below the level of the base of the wall or footing. The method you are attempting to use will never work.

big-o.com has drawings you can refer to.

The foundation I have is not flat, but jaggered rocks.  I don't think the waterproof membrane will work after looking at the sight you sent.  That is why I dug along the foundation.

You may be able to use a spray on membrane or investigate the interior options.

Would a contractor have to do the spray on, or would I beable to do this?  Also would the ground around the foundation have to be dug up?

You need the right equipment to spray it on and yes it would require a full excavation.
