How Water Gets Into Your Basement

Water can make its way into your basement through a variety of routes. Often, it seeps in through cracks or damage in the foundation walls or floors, sump pump failure, or damaged plumbing. However, the biggest and most common cause is hydrostatic pressure.

Hydrostatic pressure is created when the soil surrounding your home takes on water and expands. As soil is saturated with water, it presses inward on your foundation walls with tremendous force. This can lead to water squeezing in through even the tiniest cracks in your foundation. 

The SafeDrain Drain System

Here at Matvey Foundation Repair, we often use the SafeDrain Drain System from SafeBasements for our Bellevue drainage system installations. This is a system that is installed around the edges of your basement and connects to your sump pump. This is a simple and efficient way to capture water in your basement and direct it outward.

The SafeDrain Drain System is designed to protect your home against hydrostatic pressure, and features a rubber seal that blocks gasses and additional moisture that may leach from your soil.

The Multi-Flow Drain Tile System

Another great tool for basement waterproofing is the Multi-Flow Drain Tile, which can work with the SafeDrain Drain System. This is a unique, perforated pipe that drains water at a precise rate that avoids pressure buildup in your home in Bellevue. It is a wonderful addition to any basement waterproofing strategy.
