All due respect Chuck/Apple but man oh man, several notes for you…
- piling up/placing that soil your digging out on the ‘BANK’ near an open trench is putting you, your guys at risk baby! Don’t you own any wheelbarrows?
Hope sincerely nothing happens to you, your guys but again, get some wheelbarrows for God sake and wheel 99% of that soil out to the street and have it hauled away, backfill with gravel, most–all gravel!
Ok, back up, see the INTERIOR of those bricks, the efflorescence and some bricks and joints along the bottom deteriorating???
Same things happen to block, brick basement walls, geeeeeezz.
And NO interior basement system does ANYTHING for it, period.
3:00 digging down, see the block? That’s PART of the problem… where water etc first enters.
Chuck, all due again but I don’t see that soil as being super difficult as we’ve hand dug some of the badest azz 6-7’ ++ trenches, whatever, just saying.
3:55 ‘throw the dirt way back…’ loool, again, had you owned and used some wheelbarrows, they’d make your digs a bit easier and…SAFER!
No sump pump was necessary, period. If you would have just sealed–fully all those openings etc and backfilled with gravel it will not leak, but whatever.
10:50 they’re tossing some ‘bags of gravel, rock’ in trench… that’s it?
12:10 — 12:50 see all the exterior openings??? Yep, they are the problem.
13:30 filled all the openings? No, sorry, hardly. Jesus man, you really need to FULLY pack those but, sure it’s your job, so be it.
14:40 backfilling w/most of the same shtty soil, you can do a lot better than that for…the homeowners sake!
