    Waterproofing Basement

    Any recommendation for basement waterproofing. I just spent 1800 to install a 3 rd sump pump and my basement has still flooded. Probably needs to be trenched Any recomendationswould be appreciated.

    Have all the outside water sources that can get to the basement been deverted away from your home? Downspouts, land that slopes downwards to the home, driveways that might need a drain to move water away and so on?
    No one cares.

    ^that. Gotta find a way to get rid of the accumulating ground water before any waterproofing will really help. It may mean digging the dirt away from the outside walls, sealing them, and adding drains along the foundation.
