A lift pit is an integral part of a structure and a key point for water ingress if you don’t have high-quality waterproofing in place. Lift pits extend below ground level and, just like a basement, they are damp and vulnerable to water seepage from the surrounding earth. Water will tend to seep in through cracks and rise until it reaches the level of the natural water table.
