Will a sub pump in my basement stop water from trickling in?

I have water that comes in when it rains hard. My neighbor on one side has no gutters so water falls on my drive way & my other neighbor has their water from subpump empty onto their drive on the other side of my house. I've been here 12 years & it seems to get worse. I have sealed walls & floor & have new gutters & my drive way redone. Still have water coming in!

    Sorry to say...No, it's still going to come in.

    The sump pump will only remove water that is already there. You may want to talk with your neighbor about redirecting their water flow.

      What about Helatec or Greentree they want to put in a subpump with the drain system where they jack hammer around the floor in the basement for about $10,000.00
