The first stop for water entering your home are its shingles, clapboards or other siding (aluminum or vinyl) materials. Additionally, openings for windows and doors must be properly flashed. Flashing is a waterproof material installed in such a way the water that reaches it drains away to the top most water resistant or proof layer below it to fall harmlessly to the ground. This is why shingles, clapboards, etc. are installed from the bottom --> up. If you have water entering around or below an opening for a door or window it is most likely damaged / missing / improperly installed flashing. If it is coming in elsewhere, to origin may be on the next floor or two above you. This is not really the type of work most homeowners are capable of locating or repairing. I hope this helped somewhat - good luck!

Air conditional water drip


That happened to us. It was a broken pump, pump was up in attic. attached to our inside air-con unit. We had it fitted on an inside wall of the house, and so a pump must be installed to take away the condensed water to the outside of the house. Hindsight being 20/20 I would never buy one that needed a pump to get the condensed water out of the house. We would have put it an outside wall where the water goes straight outside, no pump needed. Our First pump lasted just over 2 years so warranty was expired. Cost us over NZ$500 to have new pump installed. Never again. Only attach your unit to an outside wall, even it looks prettier on the wall where it would need a pump. Bottom line:- Don't touch a pump. Pump was cheap but labor cost for serviceman astronomical! Bet of luck.

Drainage occurs near the front of the unit, resulting in pools of water leaking onto my window sill. Unit is installed properly, there is no drain hole to direct water away from the insides of the walls...


The A/C unit should be tilted slightly to the rear and this will allow the water to leak to the outside of the window, you may have to drill a small hole in the case to drain if there is no pre-existing hole.

Leaking basement foundation


It sounds like the ground has settled around the area where the leak is, hence the traveling water. The right way to fix the problem would be to remove the porch, dig up around the basement wall, apply a sealant to the outside of the wall, install weeping tile and re-grade the soil to drain away from the house. Your best bet to begin with may be to try to re-grade the soil so it is sloping away from the house, however this is only a temporary patch, if temperatures get below freezing there is a possibility that moisture in any crack in the wall could cause further cracking and leaks.

Emerson Quiet Kool Drips Water into the house


depends on the unit. you will probably have to slide it out of its case and clean the outside part . there should be a hose that goes from the inside to the outside for the water to go out. this hose may be clogged, trapping the water inside. as i always say a picture of the unit always helps so i can identify it and tell you what to do to try and fix the problem. email the pics to eyg2181@yahoo.com
