Unhappy

Hello All .. I am having a few problems with my BRAND NEW house.. We have had water.. We only get large amounts of it every 3 months. It is not after it rains. I was wondering if it could be an underground spring. And if it is WHO do I call? I have warrenties on my house but the nice lovely builder does not have any idea what to you. (nor do they act like they want to do anything.) If You could help me out and give me some ideas I would greatly appriciate it..
Thank You
Stephanie

Contact the City or County Engineer. Possibly, free advice is available. Otherwise hire brains > Engineer. In the mean time have you collected samples and had them tested? This could help to determine the source: sewage, fresh water supply, natural spring, fluctuating water table, ect..

My wife and I just bought a house a few months ago...built in 1830 here in New Hampshire. The house has a water problem in the basement during the spring thaw..even though the house in on a hill the water table rises enough to flood the basement during a few weeks in the early spring..so we have a permently installed sump pump that pumps water out into a make-shift well in one corner of the yard..doesn't sound like that would apply to you but it probably is a good idea to have the water tested to determine the source.
