Leaking basement

The basement of my moms house has always flooded after a good rain or snowfall. Mom installed a sump pump but I doubt it was installed properly or that it even works properly if at all. I remember mom and my step dad digging out around the foundation to waterproof it somehow. But, what ever they did; did not work. I need to fix this problem but don't know what types of remedies I should consider. I've no idea what is involved, what may work and what won't work. I appreciate any information: what worked for you - what didn't work, suggestions, recommendations or ?
