I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on replacing a concrete block that is in the middle of the foundation. I couldn't find anything remotely like this problem in the search.
I have a block *shell* there now that was patched. Apparently there was a pipe that had run through into the basement, then removed and the hole patched on the basement wall, but not on the outside.
When I took off the patch because of leaking I noticed that they didnt' patch the outside where the pipe used to come in, all I see is dirt.
Went to home depot to ask some questions and get some a mortar mixing bucket. They suggested replacing the block.
I bought a block and some mortar repair. I was going to chisel out the old block and mortar and put the new in.
Seems simple, but wanted to get some pros/cons or better advice.
