Time is being wasted trying to keep my basement from being waterlogged. Up here in Northern Michigan it rained and it rained and it rained from September to November, so now the ground around my house is saturated and at one time nearly flooded the basement. I have a 12 gallon wet/dry vac and one Sunday had to dump it 3 or 4 times that day and 3 times the next day before going to work. I'm not the only one that's having this problem as my neighbor next to me has had a sump pump going since October.
I really can't or don't feel like doing anything in the shop until I get the H2O problem under control. The water seepage is down to less than a half gallon per day so now I bought a 20# container of hydraulic cement to attack the problem with. Hoping that will do the trick.
If anybody has any suggestions, please feel free to add.
P/S I don't have the bucks to do a proper drainage system around the house....way too expensive. So I'm stuck trying to stop the invasion from inside.
PP/S also have the walls coated with DryLok.
Groan.....a total pain in the posterior.
