new house ground water in basement
We were supposed to move into our new house in four days. Yesterday, we went into the house and noticed some water in the basement. A couple of the spots were from leaks that the builder can fix, AC pump, Bilco doors and the fact that he took the port-a-potty away and the workers have been using a toilet that leaks severely into the basement when flushed, (no one noticed). But some of the water was at the foundation/wall joint. He called this morning to say that we have a ground water problem, he did all the necessary engineering before hand, the water table rose(lots of rain lately)and there was nothing else he can do. He told me to find an expert. I am really clueless about what to do. I was going to use the basement for storage, but I'm afraid our stuff will get moldy. He had one dehumidifier going and we put another (professional grade) one in today. What are some options?
