Want to waterproof foundation around cool room


I want to waterproof the foundation around the cool room. Im gonna dig a trench around the cool room on the outside.

Im not sure exactly what i have to do to waterproof the outside walls. I know i have to buy some weeping tile, some of that membrane for the wall. Im still not sure exactly what to do to waterproof the walls.

If anyone knows what i have to do exactly to waterproof the foundation around the cool room i would greatly appreciate it.

Bituthane membrane (spelling could be off) membrane is used on foam ICFs, and I think it would work on clean concrete. If you use it, install it VERTICALLY. It is called "female dog-athane" because it sticks to most anything. On all-weather wood, I used a special tar-type coating, covered w/ black visqueen, 30 yrs ago and it has worked fine. IMO, the most important thing it to seriously slope the ground away from the structure, have good roof overhands, gutters, etc.
