Lot more to it than that.
Got to figure out why the waters coming in there in the first place.
Plug that hole and it's just going to find another way in.
Is there at least a sump pump in the basement to relieve some of the water pressure under the slab?

Working gutters, grade running away from the house, no mulch pilled up againt the foundation or flower beds forming pond to hold in water.

Water will win every time, just look at the Grand Canyon.
Have to remove the source or divert it.

Is this on a septic tank?
If it's sewer water and not ground water then it sure sounds like your leach field has failed.
