Basement wall leak

My basement wall has recently begun to leak around the water supply line coming into the home. What is the best sealant product to use to fix the leak, which requires something which will adhere to concrete as well as the copper pipe? Thanks for any suggestions.

leeranger,

Issue may be worse than a simple fix.
Did this just start to happen?
Any excessive rains?
Has this happened before?
Has the lower level been dry?
Has your water bill been on the increase?

I would suggest to have someone look at. Determine if it is a simple problem or has your main water line into the home started to leak, causing water to infiltrate into the home.

This can and does happen with age. Once you know that is not water line associated, then different alternatives can be done, like hydraulic epoxy injection which work great.

Hope this helps!
