THEY say, water enters basements…
over duh ‘footer’ (geezuz man, its called a footing… say it a hundred times… FOOT-----ING, kind of like TOE----ING. loool
under duh footer
through wall cracks and mortar joints
bleeding and sweating of concrete
Eh, there are 3… that’s THREE ways water actually enters basements—
THROUGH a basement wall due to, for instance, a crack or rod hole in wall
ABOVE a basement wall through things like open mortar joints or openings around basement windows/doors 'above ground, above the wall.
UNDER the floor, and then possibly up through floor cracks etc… often due to things like a blockage/clog in a lateral line or, some problem with an existing sump pump or, some sort of leaking plumbing fixture such as a water line that goes through/under a basement floor and is leaking/dripping
Over duh FOOTER (rookie sht), through wall cracks etc in wall and most-sweating is either going to be… THROUGH the foundation wall or, above the dumb wall.
Under duh footing and under duh floor, same thing, pretty much same shtt and ya need to find/figure out, why water is accumulating under the floor and then maybe coming up through a floor crack, see above dorks.
So there are not 5 ways, but 3… over the foundation wall, through a foundation wall or under the dang floor… can we get this right or are we going to continue the incompetence or bllshtting people in order to sell your dumb az interior systems…huh!!!
Duh NOTICE, they don’t say anything about any basement getting water in due to possible ABOVE grade/ground openings!!! You people want these types coming over to access your leaky basements? huh???
WHY would any honest, experienced company/contractor OMIT this? loolololllllllll
Here’s a few of many SWEATING, damp walls… know why there are sweating/damp??? Idiots!!!
LOOK at the photo you turdz.
HERE is WHY it is sweating/damp and why there is some mold etc!!@@!
See the EXTERIOR cracks etc, this is WHERE the water is getting in you MORONS!!!
SWEATING??? Interior system previously installed here, did it STOP the sweating, mold etc??? Hlll NO!
Rest of photos of same home/basement, see the other areas of SWEATING< ongoing leaks, mold, eflorescence…that the dumb az interior system did NOT stop
Telling ya’s man, these are incompetent, erroneous, self-serving claims
Do they mean rod holes are sweating…loool like this… huh?
Geeeezus, if a homeowner has 1 or a few etc of damp, sweaty looking rod holes then duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, those rod holes are about to give way, leak… and they only to fix/repair the rod holes!
B Dry, your system does NOT… STOP water from entering exterior cracks and other exterior defects in block walls!!! Never has and never will.
Soooooooooooo, you will never stop–prevent sweating, dampness etc on these block walls.
Just because some interior system company drills friggin holes in blocks does NOT mean they have prevented A N Y T H I N G!!!@@!!!@!!! Are you Nutzzzz?
Interior basement systems CANNOT stop–preveny ANY water that is entering through ANY exterior openings in… or above, block basement walls.
If there’s a crack in a poured wall then, sure, what these interior system companies do is either inject the stupid crack or, they’ll attach/place some plastic etc against the wall where the crack is and allow it to leak down into the interior water diverting system.
So, inside basement systems do not stop 2 of the three ways water is entering block, brick basement walls.
And when the 3rd problem (water under floor) is due to a blockage in a lateral line or leaky water line or some idiot poured concrete in/down a floor drain then they don’t fix that either
People need to find, locate, determine why/where water is actually FIRST entering their basement or, accumulating under their stooopid basement floor, then fix it correctly!!!
And for most homeowners who get, who see, water in their basement that ONLY appears/comes out onto the basement floor AT—ALONG the bottom of their basement wall, where the floor and bottom of foundation walls meets, as in photos below, its actually FIRST entering through exterior cracks or other exterior openings
INSIDE basement, homeowner only gets, see water, at the very bottom of where the basement wall and FLOOR… meet!
OUTSIDE, 1 of the exterior cracks where the water first–enters into the hollow block wall
B Dry and any other interior basement system does NOT stop water entering through any exterior cracks etc like this.
That video has around 150,000 hits so, loool, do we now have around 150,000 peeps who viewed that sob who now think water enters basements 5 ways as B Dry describes and that an interior system is the only thing that ‘prevents’ (PFTTTTT!) water from entering those 5 moronic ways?
Just like this whole bunch of shtt about GRADING, that somehow, magically, re-grading supposedly stops/fixes 80–90% of all leaky basements… what a bunch of bllllshtt and many eat it up.
YOU are incompetent on this subject if you actually believe grading, adding and sloping soil away from a house, fixes most leaky basements!
SELLER graded here, added and sloped soil away… home inspector missed a bunch of shttt, did grading/adding and sloping soil fix/repair the leaky basement? Duh, no.
Another SELLER played with the grade, added a lot of soil outside and slope it away… and??? looolll …dream on people!
