Question about Rival 38651-C 6-Quart
When we get a heavy rain, water comes into my basement in one spot. Is this a plumbing problem?
based on your description, you could have a plumbing problem meaning: that rain water is getting into your vent pipe and leaking into your basement. You should be able to zero in on the exact spot if you snoop around but.. more likely you have a grading problem outside whereby when it rains, the runoff water from your roof or surrounding areas is finding a weakness in the foundation and getting in. My bet is that you may have a gutter problem or the grading ( slope) that surrounds your basement needs to be readjusted to steer water away from your foundation. There is another possibility that came to mind.. the water table in your area may be high enough to seep up thru a crack in the basement floor. Those would be the prime suspects .. Hope that helps you identify the root cause..

Check out side where the water is going into the basement, aside from the gutter down spout, you going to need pack some earth so that the water will running towards the yard. If it is where the gutter down spout is, then you need to get a gutter extension direct the water some where else.
DO not paint the basement wall, you will have mod. however, you can waterproof the wall when the weather gets to be above 55 degree.
