the INT system dude in video is trying hard to bs peeps, he would like more people to believe his crap such as between 3:00 - 3:15 , …Water that builds up on other side, on exterior against wall, is because some OTHER idiot installed the wrong interior drainage system.
Think about that… lol.
He and other INT scammers want as many people as possible to believe that, if everyone would install HIS INT system then no water will build up in soil on outside of the wall and no cracking, movement would occur.
Have you been drinking again bro?
The water IN the soil AGAINST these walls, as gravity does its thing, has already caused the soil to EXXXX—pand lol against the wall, long before water gets DOWN to the footing area where these INT system co’s often drill holes in bottom blocks on the inside.
The holes are drilled because they want to ‘TRY’ and divert-manage the water that gets inside the cores of the blocks through exterior cracks, cracked parging etc, into their goofball INT system.
THIS is why they drill the dumb az holes inside, not because it eases or reduces the exterior lateral pressure against these dang walls. But they’ll ‘spin it’ anyway they can, just like this guy did in video for, SELF gain!
Say again, when its friccccken raining the lol raindrops FIRST get in the soil at-along grade, then it’ll go deeper in soil aka DOWN hence, the soil… the TOP layers of clay, silt (just below grade), exxxxpands, and the more it rains the more saturated the soil becomes well before it gets down the the bottom of the frickkkken wall where these morons drilled holes!!! The soil has already expanding INCREASING lateral pressure against the wall and don’t forget quite a few houses and some underground tree ROOTS that grow along or against basement walls, roots can cause cracks and increase pressure against a wall… of course these morons don’t remove squat OFF OF the exterior of these basement walls and do NOT repair/waterproof any of the existing EXTERIOR cracks in these walls, TOTAL incompetence, negligence imo and total self-serving $$$$$
Wall is bowed in, multiple EXTERIOR cracks in wall.
Someone in the past dug out a corner, see tar, and then backfilled with all same clay soil.
Doing a corner and backfilling w/same soil doesn’t relieve any lateral pressure againt the wall
So back to INT system dude in video, he is trying to bullshtt ya and tell ya that if you hire him or others like him and you install his INT system that his system (holes drilled in bottom blocks etc) will significantly reduce lateral pressure acting upon these walls = total crap as i said.
Water will still build up in the soil, SATURATE the soil and act upon the stupid wall, you’d have to be a clueless sht head to believe these INT system jerks… THINK Dammmittt, lol.
Have posted many videos where an INT system was already installed, and some of those also had wall anchors or C fiber straps or beams installed and the basements still leaked and there was continued wall movement or widening of at least some cracks!
Per his comment on thickness of B floor slab, the main point i’d like to bring up about that is lol,
when the bottom course of blocks have shifted or deteriorated and an INT system jerk j-hammers the perimeter floor/removes, THAT is when there IS an increase risk of that wall bowing in or possibly collapsing.
:40 mark —>> 1:25 Plz SEE aka eyeball closely the bottom blocks
if penls brains INT systems j-hammers floor out when blocks are like this, there’s a good chance/risk of BIGGER problems
Have posted a couple news articles where Everdry and someone else REMOVED - j hammered the perimeter floor and then the basement wall collapsed inward. HAD these nitwits done the right thing for the homeowners and for the wall, exterior waterproofing, then that would not have happened.
Allowing water to continually enter, pass through block walls is a frigggggin mistake man, blocks can deteriorate, disintegrate, and the wall becomes even weaker BEHIND the crap many of these companies place against the inside of basement walls aka concealing the true condition of the wall
Lateral soil pressure and underground roots… and allowing water to penetrate, pass through blocks, saturate blocks repeatedly caused wall to bow in, disintegrate some blocks and yet the INT system dude in video said what he said??? hahahaaaa
LOOK at the photos jezzzus… many other basement or crawl walls just like or very similar to this… some worse and yet INT system guy wants all to believe they just need an int system and some C fiber straps, my azzzzzzzzzzz, total bullshtt
