Pipe Penetration Leaks
Leaks can occur from wall piping installation below the grade that have penetrated the foundation. A larger hole is drilled in the foundation and then the smaller line is fed through. A cement cap is placed on both the interior and exterior faces of the foundation. Over time cement breaks down and the water flows in around the piping. If not addressed quickly, it can cause significant damage that can get quite expensive to repair.
We remove the interior patch to expose the void. A series of small plastic ports are placed around the pipe and held in place with a non-shrink waterproof mortar. After the surface patch has dried, an epoxy/urethane resin is injected to fill the void. These can also be addressed from the exterior. The inspector who is present will advise you to the best possible approach.
