In response to Re: Sewer pipe through basement wall
Hydraulic cement on both sides should seal the pipe. Plastic is a hard material to seal to since its surface is very slick.

: 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!
