It is too good to be true.
They don't show what happens when the water table rises after
you put that sealer on the floors and walls.
A coat of sealer won't hold back the water for long.
The correct procedure is to break the concrete floor all around the
perimeter, dig a trench, install piping, cover with concrete, leaving
a slit, install sump pump, create drainage holes for the walls so the
walls stay dry.
There are a lot of specialty basement waterproofing companies.
I had it done over 30 years ago. Still dry.

Water getting into a basement is not always the
result of a rising water table. The water table
can be well below the basement floor and water
can still make it's way in. But I agree that if
he has a water table problem, this product
sure isn't going to cure it.
Agree that he should have all that except
drainage holes in the walls. Around here we put a
membrane outside the walls during construction
specifically to make them water tight.
