Plumbing /Irrigation


My house has cinderblock walls with my sewer plumbing exiting through a hole at the foundation,and the hole is so close to the ground on the outer wall that water is coming through the hole when it storms real bad..I was wondering what i can use to seal the hole around the sewer pipe but be able to remove sewer pipe if i need to repair or replace said pipe (pvc),the hole is 3 inches bigger than the sewer pipe..

Use hydraulic cement to seal around it.

Worst case, down the road, you can chip it out.


Been there, done that.

They should have used a sleeve and a donut. Since that was not done try spray foam in a can. The expanding type.
