    Is it seeping through the walls, or coming up from the ground?

    Did you pick up a sump pump? That's what you need attach a hose to it and snake the hose outside and it will suck it up.

    They make drain caps that are one way. They have a floater in it so the water cannot back up. My old house flooded once and I grabbed one of those for the next time. It might be worth looking into for the weather we're getting this week.

    I'm sorry man, that shit SUCKS.
