通過艙壁的縫隙進來的水。怎麼修?


1

在艙壁與基礎牆接觸的地方存在縫隙。外面正在下雨,現在有水通過縫中的小裂縫流入。這導致水在下面積聚,最終進入地下室。

解決此問題的最好,最持久的方法是什麼?我擔心如果我使用更多的填縫劑,它將最終在凍結/融化週期中再次破裂。

更糟糕的是,這是一棟新建建築,建造於2017年。按照該鎮的法規,安裝了一個周邊排水系統。我擔心這個周邊排水口沒有在艙壁周圍延伸。目前,外面的艙壁周圍積聚了很多水。bulkhead door

You say, “...pooling up around the bulkhead.” Does that mean ponding water on the surface of the ground directly above the perimeter drain?

If so, you could have two problems (assuming the perimeter drain is really installed): 1) the soil (backfill) against the retaining wall and/or around the drain line does not percolate (drain), and/or 2) the drain line does not extend to where it can drain out.

1) Soil should have enough voids to allow water to percolate down to the drain line and then “run” (or be pumped) out so that the water drains away. Usually drainrock is used so that water can move freely through the rock and away from the wall. Here, we use a 3” thick mesh that lays against the wall so no water will lay against the wall.

2) Once the water has reached the drain line it needs to run away from the area. Otherwise, the water will fill the site up and put pressure against the wall. Water has tremendous pressure the deeper it is. That pressure will “push” water through any crack or joint.

Also, another important step is locating the drain line below the slab. Otherwise, water under the drain line but above the slab will enter the room.

Caulking and patching the inside of the wall will never be permanent. The only permanent fix is done on the outside of the wall. There are systems designed to gather the water inside the room and then pump it out, but then you’ll need to watch for mold, etc. buildup.

If the construction is less than a year old, it’s still under warranty. Contact your Builder Board that license contractors and discuss with them.
