Why Do Basements Leak?
The Most Common Reasons
The exterior drain tile eventually becomes clogged with sediment and dirt. Even if the pipe is clear, the small holes or slits that allow water to enter the pipe will clog. This allows the water table to rise around the house creating hydrostatic pressure.
Once the water is at a level above your basement's lowest point, hydrostatic pressure is constantly applied to your foundation walls and floor. The water will find the path of least resistance in order to find its level.
The cove joint (where the footer, wall, and floor meet) is the most common area to leak because this is the weakest point in the foundation.
