I am looking into a diy basement waterproofing solution for my home. I
found via google that both tufflex and sanitred have a similar line of
product -- anyone have experience with either of these companies?
Before asking, might want to fill us in on some information.
1. Have you taken all steps to preven water entering your basement
2. How is the water entering the basement?
3. Do you have a sump?

That stuff will stop water. When I paint, over time the pressure will
cause the paint to bulge out. I don't think there is any stopping it.
The rubber coating should do the same thing. A thick epoxy will
probably last the longest. Before a coating is put on, it must be clean
first you MUST redirect water from around the foundation by regrading
and LONG downspout lines away from home. keep gutters clean and drains
then move indoors with a sump and perimeter drain system, pump sump
water well away from home and the perimeter drain must drain all wall
the last thing to do is paint the walls with waterproof paint.
I have been thru all of this:(
