Basement waterproofing, poured wall crack, leaks

And the wall is bowed in a bit plus, some of the bricks an mortar joints are cracked… vertical/step/horizontal. Porch/some of the footing is against the basement wall, it settled a little helping to cause to some of the cracks in wall and cracks in bricks atop duh wall. Expansive clay soil and underground tree roots are part of the cause of cracks, leak.

Inside basement

Outside again, backfill w/gravel, haul the clay away

Last year we waterproof the other front corner, about 6’, same type of cracks etc.
Explained in detail to the homeowner that it would be best for the wall to, waterproof the entire front wall and, remove the porch etc… because she is a senior and doesn’t have much funds, she could not afford it.

Just saying, doing the entire wall would have been the best thing to do for the poured wall and the bricks and joints. Remove the porch and footing, hand dig the entire wall, haul all that clay soil away plus get all the tree roots off wall… waterproof the wall and backfill w/all gravel…put a small porch, maybe even a wood porch back or small pad, smaller/thinner than the existing one. Get as much crap/weight OFF the wall as possible/reasonable.

By the way, this wall has been like this, she says, for approx. 20 years, IT hasn’t moved much if any at all… cracks leaked so she didn’t want the swimming pool inside eh. BUTT, some of the bricks and mortar joints have re–cracked and they will likely continue to do so in duh future.
So, installing 8–10 wall anchors or carbon fiber straps would not have done anything for the wall plus, doing anything inside the basement does not remove, reduce any soil weight/expanding soil or get rid of any tree roots that were against the wall etc.

It’s just that the inside system chump–heads do that, sell that crap, tell homeowners all kinds of crap to push wall anchors etc on homeowners, got dat?

And some of the inside system morons would have tried telling homeowners their house is SETTLING so that they could also sell them unneeded PIERS! Idiotzzzz.
If one were to scroll down a bit to, ‘Severity of Problem’…
‘Swelling soils are a nationwide problem. Each year, shrinking or swelling inflict $$$ in damages to houses, building etc…more than twice the damage from floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes’
