window well leaking
We have a basement window well that is full of water. In fact the water has risen high enough to start coming into the basement through the window itself. The ground around the window well slopes away from the house and is damp, but there is no surface water anywhere. I'm guessing that the water is getting into the window well because the seal between the house and the window well below grade is not working correctly. The other widows are completely dry so I don't think it's just a high water table. Any other causes you can think of? Also, what would be the best solution to this problem? Could I just get some caulking and try to reseal the window well to the house? What about digging the window well deeper, so that it can hold more gravel/water before getting in through the window? Thanks.
