To stop a leaking old basement we plan to dig down to the footings, tile, gravel etc. well my husband ordered this to paint onto the outside of the basement walls before we fill in the dirt/gravel. it was pretty darn expensive I just would like to hear about any personal experiences/knowledge on it. thanks!!!

I wouldn't rely on anything but a spray-applied asphaltic coating to dampproof subgrade foundation walls. Take it back and have a foundation dampproofer come out and shoot the walls. It won't be too expensive and will likely perform better than a paint-type product.
