Question I find water only here in the basement after it rains

I find water only here after it rains. This is in the basement, below a bunch of pipes and plumbing. This is an inside wall, not adjacent to the outside. Suggestions?

Usually water under the foundation appears where the outside walls join the floor but can appear any place there is a way thru the floor.

A typical start to correcting a water issue is to make sure all the ground outside the house is pitched away from the house. Make sure all gutters are clean and not overflowing allowing water to penetrate the foundation.

Do you have a sump pit ?
