How can I stop it?

Why work outside?
The exterior is the “ROOT” of the problem and should always be considered.

Why not a indoor sump system?
Indoor systems companies never consider “WHY” your basement leaks. They use a electrical pump to pump out water out AFTER it has already entered underneath your basement’s floor . If it fails, and they often do, the water is ready and waiting to reenter your basement and soak your carpet, sheetrock and furniture again because the ACTUAL PROBLEM was never considered.
