How to Clear Water out of a Crawlspace

Listener Question:

Peggy from West Virginia – “We have water that stands under our house. We have tried a sump pump, but it never keeps up. We have drained away from the house. The crawl space is about 4 ft. No plumbing leaks. My husband swears there is water coming up from the ground somewhere. What should we do? We are elderly and are wanting to sell and move south.”
