Basement waterproofing is essentially the use of special techniques and products to prevent water infiltration in a basement foundation.
Hydrostatic pressure is pressure from a body of water at rest. The weight of the water itself is what causes the pressure. The higher the water is in a vertical column, the greater the pressure. If the void space in the soil around your foundation is filled with water, like during heavy rain, the hydrostatic pressure will push the water through the foundation and into the basement.
