Honeycomb or Rock Pockets:
If you notice a section of your basement wall or floor that has deteriorated over time and appears to not be waterproof anymore, this could be a sign of a Honeycomb issue.
Though sometimes these are hairline cracks that don’t show themselves well, many foundation cracks are obvious to see from the crack that has appeared and the water that is now able to get through. A crack should be looked at by a professional immediately to figure out the severity.
Bowed basement walls:
Have you noticed that your basement walls are not as straight as they used to be? Can you see a bowing shape to the walls from the outside pressure constantly pushing against your foundation walls? Bowed foundation walls can be a sign of serious complications to come.
