Pony wall install behind boiler

A pony wall will be installed to correct foundation issues in an old house with an equally old residential boiler system. Is there any issue with covering up most of this pipe with the pony wall? It appears to be some sort of pressure release pipe/channel that disappears into the pad (presumably ties in with the sewer line).

Not sure where that is going to but it should be going to daylight. That means you should be able to see the end of the pipe. It's a pressure relief drain. It's good to know if it is releasing.... it normally shouldn't be. Discharge usually means a valve problem.

I would disconnect it from where it's going.
Repair your wall and then re-pipe so that it goes down the wall to near the floor.
Many people don't even pipe it.

Copy that, exactly what I was looking for - thanks PJmax
