I've had moderate experience with dryloc. I've seen it fail many times. Especially if there's gonna be moisture soaked block behind it for any length of time. I guess you can get all kinds of chemical reactions going on with mineral saturated rainwater or groundwater sitting in the blocks. I've seen it just bubble up and flake off. Usually put several coats on and even then it hasn't done what it claims to do.
I fiberglassed a pool house inner wall for a guy once. The back wall was up against a bank, somebody else had already put in a french drain for the guy. I don't know how that held up never heard from them again. Used West System epoxy and fiberglass cloth.
Poly sheets will give you a vapor barrier, but if there's any space behind them and you have moisture, you will get mold. I just told the story here of a customer that had their relative finish their basement; poly barrier, stud wall. House is in a high water table area. Black mold got all over the basement,behind the walls, and their new baby got sick as hell. They needed to gut the finished basement, and do it over right.
