Q:

I have a rental home that has a small basement. It does have a sump pump but they burn out a lot due to sludge coming in from somewhere. I can't afford to dig up the yard so what do you suggest I should do to keep the water out with any sump punp?

2nd question: While driving I heard you show on the radio and couldn't call so here is my question... You said something about a water paint that keep water out once it is on and I get water in a room that was built but wasn't sealed well and now every time it rains, water comes flowing in. I have caulk but not working. I first got large fishing worms coming in, then I put black top on my driveway and that stopped most of that, but not completely. I could use help with stopping bugs, worms and water leaking in. What do you suggest?
