The Clay Bowl Concept
When your foundation is built into the soil, it creates a permanent void that water is constantly trying to refill, whether that is your crawl space or your basement. Whenever the earth becomes saturated, water will run into the walls of your foundation and enter your basement by force of hydrostatic pressure or find ways of seeping in through cracks or pipe holes.
This water pressure will occur during prolonged heavy rains despite your best efforts to keep ground water away from your home. That is why extending downspouts, building up the grade, caulking driveway cracks, and even adding room addition slabs may mitigate the amount of seepage you receive, but won't solve the problem.
