Problem: Leaking Pipe Penetration
There are a few necessary pipes to bring and remove items from your home, water, gas, and sewage. Pipes that are penetrating through your concrete wall are normally not an issue but if they were not installed or sealed properly, they can become a hazard to the concrete surrounding them. Over time exposure to water can lead to deterioration and create more problems such as mold, rust, and wall cracks. Pipe penetrations are usually plumbing pipes that reside within your basement and flow throughout your home. If the area where the pipe was installed is not properly sealed or the seal has broken, you will find leaks coming from the outside seeping inward. Leaks can also comes from the pipe if it's broken or cracked- however this is usually not the issue.
