“Hydrostatic Pressure” refers to water pressure and is a major cause of basement water problems. Water weighs slightly more than 60 lbs. per cubic foot. If the soil around your basement is saturated with water, there could be tens of thousands of pounds of hydrostatic pressure against your foundation. With significant pressure, it's likely that water will find its way through even the smallest crack or gap in your basement.
Even a well-constructed basement foundation can’t provide a perfect barrier against hydrostatic pressure. An integrated interior waterproofing system that relieves pressure is the best approach in most situations. Interior drainage systems collect water where the basement floor meets the basement wall. By not relying on outside drains that can clog with silt or roots, interior systems work continuously to channel water to a connected sump pump that automatically channels any water to the outside.
Interior waterproofing is the best approach to managing the water that has already found its way into your home, relieving hydrostatic pressure & lowering the water level under your slab is what you need to stop the leaks.
