Hi. I recently purchased a home and have been living here for almost a month. yesterday I noticed a my basement wall was a little damp about 6 inches below where the sewer stack exits the house. I ran some water down the drain for a little while and noticed some water seeping through the basement wall and trickling down the wall The sewer stack going into the wall is galvanized. I do not see any cracks in the block wall in this area and after a while the seeping stops and the wall dries. Could this be a major project to repair or might I be worrying about nothing?

Thanks

Dave

You may want to post this in the plumbing area.

This looks like it could be an expensive repair . When you had your closing did you have any money left in an escrow account? Also did a home inspector or old owner tell you this could be signs that the cast iron pipe going through the foundation wall was not properly installed as it should have been sleeved
