Mystery Pipe
Posted by KMS on January 11, 1999 at 21:47:35:
We recently purchased a new home and discovered a slight seepage of water coming from what somebody said was a stand pipe. It is accessed through a hole in the foundation wall and it stands about 8 inches off the ground. The water is approximately 2 inches from the top of the pipe. What is this pipe and are we looking at potential flooding of our basement? What happens when the water rises above the level of the pipe? We are only asking because we live in the midwest and the snow is beginning to melt.
