Hole in concrete foundation
I was at my mom's place this weekend and she's been having a leak in her basement for a while now, so I decided to remove the wall to see what's going on.
In the cold room wall, there was a hole covered up with a piece of wood, that was leaking, I'm wondering why they had a hole there in the first place, for a vent? I have some photos, my plan is to dig from the outside and patch it up with hydraulic cement, and patch the hole as water is coming in. Any insight would be great
Looks like a piece of PVC in the wall,hydraulic cement might not adhere,you might see if a smaller piece of pipe will fit inside the one thats there now,and put a cap on it and glue it in.
