I know in some situations it's all you can do and it is cheaper but at that point you've lost the battle for a dry basement and now your just trying to manage the consequences. mentioned a product called UGL.
I'm not familiar with that but if you want to attempt to water proof the foundation from the inside there is only one way to do it.
You need a liquid product that penetrates the concrete and crystallizes in the concrete wall.
One product is Xypex but there are others.
It works but it has it's limits and should not be counted on as a replacement for proper foundation exterior sealing and drainage.

I agree completely, and "Welcome" to the site. I hope you stick around, some of us get tired of pounding our heads against the wall telling posters that you can't solve a wet foundation problem with paint...........
