I inspected a home today with a cistern installed under the attached garage. The house is about 30 years old. The internal wall of the cistern (in the basement of the house) has water leaking through at about the third concrete block up from the bottom. Water is pooling (not much) at the base of the wall on the floor).
There is evidence that this has been an ongoing problem as a nearby doorframe lights up wet with a moisture detector.
Here’s my question… given that it is a block wall with cavities in the middle, would an IR inspection determine if water is being retained within the wall?
I’ve recommended an inspection by a cistern guy and foundation guy.
