Basement water control question

1535 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  AllanJ
I am looking to control water coming in one corner of a walk out basement, concrete block walls. Surface water has been taken care of - gutters, downspouts, slope, outside french drain. It seems that when it's wet out for long periods water works its way up from below the house. Only comes in one corner of the basement. No sump pump in basement now.

My choices are; just put a sump pump in that corner and hope that solves it and add drain tile later if it doesn't. ($1350)
Do sump and 30ft of drain tile now ($2500)
Any thoughts? Your wise opinions will be greatly appreciated.
