For us now no holes or gaps between the concrete and ground. It has to stop radon gas. Even sump pump pits and pipes have to be sealed 100%. That opens up a can of worms working on existing diy sump pits. There's no way of sealing them unless a full replacement and people are so cheap they expect a 25$ job because they were flooded. They prefer buying a new tv than paying a plumber.most females have the same thing..LMFAO...:vs_laugh::vs_laugh::vs_laugh:
but on a serious note, in my area the ground is almost pure sand, so water drains like no tomorrow, many or all basements just have a hole with a grate over it by the boiler for draining any water and is NOT piped into the plumbing system..
They only hire the CHEAPEST PLUMBER in town because the insurance forces them to have a legit receipt. My sump pump page gets a lot of views from people trying to get info to do it themselves then they call to get dozens of free estimates.
