Sewer pipe through basement wall
Posted by Tom Bishop on January 16, 19101 at 12:37:59:
When the basement walls were poured a 6 - 8 inch metal pipe was set in the wall to maintain an opening
for running the 4 inch PVC sewer pipe through. The opening is not sealed properly and water leaks into
the basement. I have done all that I can to the inside wall and the leak is now only a trickle when it rains.
My question is, how should this have been sealed from the outside? I am going to dig down to the pipe
and attempt to fix the problem but I want to find out what the proper repair should be.

Thank You!
