Beaver water control system


http://basementwaterproof.com/

Has anyone ever used this system?? With success?? It looks pretty shady to me but Im running out of options.
I have a minor seepage in my bsaement which I am in the process of finishing. I can not put an interior french drain because I have a monolithic footing( id have to break 3' in to footing to hit dirt)

Question, How do you pitch the water to flow toward a sump pump if these channels lay flush on the floor?

Ever install a sump pit in a uni pour slab??

you don't,,, water has a tendency to ' seek its own level ',,, eg, can you pour a gallon on your kitchen table ? of course not because it will flow even if the table's perfectly flat,,, look at how high 1 can fill a glass of wtr - above the rim,,, how is that possible,,,,,,,, surface tension's the answer

occasionally we did install a sump & pump in a monopour but only back from the turned down edge

In all fairness there is a big difference between a gallon of water on a table versus a small amount of water sitting in a 110' linear foot channel over somewhat level concrete slab. But I do see your point in regards to water tension and I appreciate your experience.

' fairness ' has nothing to do w/wet bsmts UNLESS you count as fair accepting the work of a builder who built according to ' code ' most decent bldrs know better

why do you think wet bsmt claims are limited to the 1st year of a home warranty ? answer - because it generally takes longer than a year for leaks to show up inside the new homes
