water constantly flowing through cinder blocks

water is constantly flowing into well house through areas where mortar is missing. Can something be applied inside the well house to stop the constant flow of water?

Replacing the missing mortar will help but those types of leaks are best addressed from the exterior side.

Mortaring up an openings will stop water from freely flowing in. It will not stop water from seeping through the block so it's best to grade outside to direct water away from the well house.
