Basement window, window well, smfh, trying to help ya, not screw ya sheesh.
Looks like poured wall, i think he said he was getting water in through WINDOW. Dunno if he has drywall/paneling up in basement, if NOT, can see whether or not there would be a need to dig IF there is a crack in poured wall HERE. Or if there was a deteriorated rod hole, that could have been fixed from inside.
POINT is, ya gotta IDENTIFY the problem (s) first so, if NO crack in wall n no leaky rod hole and he was ONLY getting water in UP HIGH, from the B window… DOWN, then NO NEED to dig. If the water is only coming in through, around the B window then the problem is, THE basement window!!!
The problem is NOT, a drainage thing lol. Sure fine if someone wants to keep water from pooling around a window like this, go right ahead, dig, didn’t t need to dig this deep but whateve.
I don’t see that anything was… SEALED, folla??
1:30 mark video, i don’t give ALL my lil secrets out but here is one…some insight about those drain tiles.
Have dug for 40 yrs man, all—the–way----DOWN, have seen these stupid azz drain tiles for 4 decades, THINK ABOUT THIS… think long n hard…
YOUR way of thinking (its all about BETTER DRAINAGE), so YOUR thinking took you to these lengths to dig down to the EXT tiles, NEWS for ya, what happens to your thought-process and supposed SOLUTION (drainage) when you get DOWN to the bottom, to these tiles and…lol, they are CLOGGED?
Yeah, every now n then ‘some’ of the ext drain tiles can be partially or fully clogged OR, broken… they could clogged/busted going ONE way or BOTH ways, now what??? There goes your drainage!!! haha
I’m trying to friggin help, explain what i/we have repeatedly see for 4 decades, show me someone else on the planet who is first… HONEST, and then has seen this shtt for 40 years, INSIDE… and OUTSIDE, a rare few if any.
Your vertical DRAIN TILE cheap O junk IN the window well that you wanna ‘tie into’ the existing tiles or, plop on top of the existing tiles is NOT going to seal any openings around, under that B window!
And as i just painstakingly said, what happens when some of many of the existing drain tiles down there are clogged, maybe busted? lol
FIND the problem (s), identify exactly WHERE, how, the water is getting in… that’s number one, THEN you know for sure what needs to be done and… its NOT new/better drainage!
Sooo i feel kind of bad for THIS homeowner n others like him, i wish i could help them, explain shtt to them BEFORE THEY do what they do
