I live in a 1920s house with a field stone foundation up to about 6 feet, with concrete above. I've always had one damp corner. About a year ago, I started to get water through the wall in another area. Not enough for a sump, but enough to have to vacuum up from time to time. Leak is intermittent, usually when the water table is high and seeps in through the wall, not at the base.
Along with being field stone, there's an old retaining wall just outside that was erected without weep holes, which must add to the problem. Also, the wall is directly behind my washer and dryer. Any issues around my gas pipe being on this damp wall?
I'm assuming I can't water proof the field stone. Anyone have any ideas that don't involve a new foundation?
