Basement foundation crack leak repairs
99% of the time a foundation crack is nothing to worry about; this is because concrete cracking is a normal occurrence. Crack widths in the 1-2mm range are very common and easily fixed.
Most cracks in poured concrete foundations (used for most homes built since the late 1970s) are typically caused by concrete shrinkage as concrete cures. These cracks are usually fixed from inside at low cost by injecting resins into the crack under pressure; thus eliminating the crack. Another approach is to excavate the foundation on the exterior at the crack location and cover the crack with a waterproof barrier; however, this is more destructive and much more expensive.

Concrete block foundation leak repairs
The presence of cracks in the mortar joints of concrete block / cinderblock foundations is normal and typically the result of fatigue from pressure applied to the foundation from expanding and contracting soil around the home.
Cracking in concrete block foundations allows water to enter the hollow blocks and drain down to the lowest course(s) of block from which water eventually seeps into your basement. For this link for more information on fixing concrete block foundation leaks
