So, I am about to give up :(
I've been pumping water out of my basement every evening for two weeks now (following NE two weeks ago). The water is still comming back. Every rainy day sets me about 5 days back (in my basement water condition). It looks water table is not going anywhere any time soon.
So I am almost about to pay big bucks for something to be done in my basement.
My basment is unfinished and consists of crawl space and another space 6 feet high, deeper in the ground. The floor is concrete, and it is not even (I have to pump out of three different spots now).
One of contractors suggests 2 separate systems -- one for the crawl space and one for the another space -- each one with sump pump and french drain. He is saying that two systems are nesessary because the different floor level, and the french drain is especially necessary since the floor is not even. He is asking $7000 for this work.
I am in NJ.
Do you think what he suggested to be done is reasonable?
Do you think the price is reasonable? How is it affected with the fact that the work seems urgent?
Thanks for any advice.
