Unfortunately, water soaking and leaking through basement walls is a relatively normal thing, especially in areas that get more rain. This is because the water mainly comes through as groundwater, slowly soaking through your walls, rather than rain just pouring into the basement. This is why a basement drain like Waterguard, is such a helpful product to have installed in your home. This homeowner had this exact problem, water was not rushing in, but slowly seeping through the basement walls.
The "before" photo shows part of the basement that was heavily affected by the water intrusion. You can see the signs of the water intrusion on the left wall. Most of the white "powder" are mineral deposits caused by evaporating water, leaving behind whatever minerals were in the water.
The "after" photo shows the same area, but with our system installed. The two products that are in the picture are our a SuperSump sump pump and our Waterguard system. The Waterguard runs the length of the wall and drains to the sump pump. This keeps water from just sitting on the basement floor or walls and actually gives it a place to go. Once the water drains to the sump pump, it is then pumped outside of the home.
