You might be asking Why is water coming up through my basement or crawlspace floor after heavy rain? The truth is, if water is coming from the floor up (as opposed to dripping down walls), then it is probably due to a subsurface problem.
Subsurface groundwater under hydrostatic pressure is a serious concern and one that cannot be ignored. We’ll explain a bit more about what this means and what can be done to protect your home from these water woes.
What is Hydrostatic Pressure?
First, you need to understand what hydrostatic pressure means, as it’s your key enemy in the battle against a flooded basement. Hydrostatic pressure is the water pressure pushing against your home’s foundation. This force can be incredibly powerful. If your soil is heavily saturated after a heavy rain, there could be tens of thousands of pounds of hydrostatic pressure pushing on your foundation—making it likely that it’s going to find its way in. With that kind of pressure, water will come through even the tiniest of cracks.
