Exterior Waterproofing – Clay Soil, DIY, Gravel is the Key

Crawl Space, Basement or Slab, when waterproofing there are 3 things that you must do. 1st, excavate to below the top of footer and clean. If you are not at the top of the footer, water will continue to cause problems.

2nd, Apply sealant to the seam and wall. We use BlackJack #57.

3rd, Gravel under your pipe, Holes of pipe POINT DOWN, more gravel over top and cover footer. Then discharge Downhill (gravity) or use a sump pump to discharge to daylight.

If you do these 3 things, you will solve your water problem.
