Default Hydro Static Investigation

Greetings dear folks:

Our newish house has sub surface and surface drainage issues.

The builder's ORIGINAL engineer installed 2 piezometers in the backyard during August.

They announced there are no underwater issues, humm.

Q - To ascertain if there is hydrostatic water pressure under the foundation, how would a piezometer process actually work - like measure in all seasons to get a real profile?

We are suspicious as the builders engineer on this file is the same as the one who built the lot, the retaining wall at the back - hence no arms length assessment.

I would appreciate your analysis.

Thank you kindly.
