Manuka Trail in Gaylord
Water seems to be coming in from a back corner and then up through the floor in the middle of the basement. We had issues last spring but our subpump was emptying out right next to the house. We dug a trench and moved the water out from the house. We also put gutters on the house so that all the area with basement had them. Now we don't know what else to do . We live near a Lake (Manuka) that was so high this summer that they closed the public ramp.
