Hydrostatic pressure can easily drive groundwater into the buildings underground garage through gaps and cracks in concrete and masonry foundation walls. High water pressure can also cause seepage through solid reinforced concrete walls. “Hydrostatic Pressure” refers to a water pressure and is a major cause of underground garage water problems and structural foundation failures.
Horizontal cracks often indicate a more serious problem. They are caused by hydrostatic (water) pressure from the outside of the walls and can lead to a failure in the foundation. Additional pressure due to heavy rains or flooding can create serious horizontal cracks that need to be repaired as soon as possible.
