This is what i did to stop a major groundwater issue with clay soil in my house. Was put in when i did foundation though, so it was easy. 8-10k would be paying someone to do all the work. I think ive got mine done under 5k.


This exactly what Iím doing only Iíll also be adding 2Ē foam board, this adds $3K alone.

What Iím looking for are brands of waterproofing, membrane, filter fiber, etc. Iím not finding anything locally without paying someone to do it for me.
