I have dug down and found the edge of the footer and there is no water, but inside there appears to be seepage coming through the styrofoam edge, has anyone encountered this problem before, could it be coming from under my slab and finding a weak spot to come in?

Was there a specific reason you dug down to the footing?

Was there a crack you where going to repair or was it to inspect the weeping tile?

Did you find the weeping tile and was it clear?

What part is the styrofoam edge?

Water coming up from the floor wall joint is indicitive of a drainage system failure. A functioning exterior of interior tile system is required to fix the problem. You have to think of it as providing a drain beneath the floor that drains the hole your house is sitting in. Don't think of it as if your house is a boat and your trying to plug a leak.
