Sealing basement walls - which sealer

Hey Guy's, I recently sealed my exterior wall with drylok and I either did not use enough or I have another problem. I am still getting moisture in my basement. Has any one used or had experiance with Radonseal or thuro-seal (SP) or any other brands of sealer on the interior of the their basement. Radon seal looks good at sealing and controlling the the concrete and blocks - Thanks Mike

Most sealers are good but thinking that this will stop persistant leaks is like applying a band aid to a wound that won't stop bleeding.

Only in cases where mild and occasional capillary seepage occurs are applications of waterproofing paint or other interior compounds likely to provide any lasting degree of improvement in achieving a dry basement. Do-it-yourselfers should carefully read the label to determine the waterproofing product's limitations and the terms of any guarantee promised.

Please keep in mind, interior wall treatment will not work if major exterior water conditions exist.

Hope this helps!
