We have lived in our home for 4 years and had no idea it had a crawlspace. Seriously! So anyway, we had a home inspection and they discovered standing water on the vapor barrier (over a dirt floor).
Upon further inspection it was determined that the water was coming in where the main water pipe comes in the house. We had someone check the meter and they said the main pipe wasn't leaking. I "think" it's ground water coming in through the conduit that houses the main water pipe. We live at the base of the Cascades in the Seattle area (with lots of rain), on a hillside.
So...I've poked around ****** and found others with similar issues. Do you folks think I could plug the conduit with the hydronic cement (or whatver it's called)?
Also, the dirt under the vapor barrier is pretty wet in spots- is that a problem even if it's covered up? A shady plumbing company convinced us that we need a sump pump so have that in place...
