Leaky basement wall

Do you mean a crack in the concrete wall or at the joint between the concrete wall and a floor slab?

Leaky basement wall

as dick asked, a crk IN the wall OR the junction of the wall & floor ? ? ? another question would be this - conc OR block wall ? ? ? its rare any bldr installs waterstop in the ' cover ' if that's where the leak's emanating,,, it may've stopp'd raining but there's still wtr outside your wall that hasn't been absorb'd by the soil OR drain'd away from a possible toe drain.
