High buildup of soil, no access to the damp side .....

Tanking creates a barrier preventing further water seepage through the wall. In high buildup areas sometimes it’s the only choice. 

Tanking and Basement Solutions

Tanking is used on basement walls and areas where there is a high external build up of soil. Excavation and drainage access is denied in this circumstance. The positive side of the wall, or the side of water penetration and damp, cannot be accessed and repaired through traditional methods. This procedure is used to prevent water from further penetrating through the wall.
