My husband and I bought a new home with Superior Walls. At first, we were very happy to have a basement with Superior Walls. HOWEVER, within the past 6 months we have had water in our basement twice! This past week it was 1" of water throughout our basement. We have a hole in one corner, which I believe should have a pump in it but the builder said he didn't have to install one. The hole fills with water and overflows, but what concerns me most is the amount of water all over our basement. Does this mean a draining system should have been installed?

First of check the ground level and plumbing system because minor fault it can be caused, so check the proper way and fix it by plumber.

so what did the bldr say when you asked him about the hole,,, superior walls aren't to blame but putting a pump in that hole would certainly resolve the issue of a flooding bsmt, don't you agree ? we use zoeller automatic m53 pumps [no $ interest] exclusively,,, would be nice IF you were to install a proper sump, too,,, we use radon sumps as found on eBay OR 2 ferguson's plumbing supply
