1974, townhouse, condos, in Montreal, Canada. The unit was at the middle of the four units.
The property is powered by electricity only.
These caps are located at the front door side. The AC condensation water was seen at rear side.
The weep holes were normally observed at the front and rear side.
Since the basement was completely finished by a renovation company and the unit was rent in past years, the seller agent cannot give any clue.
I am just curious to know what it was.
Just a wag here. But it is more than obvious someone has performed some type of site drainage or foundation water proofing repairs to keep that basement dry. Somebody did this work and someone paid for it. I suspect the answer lies with them.
More than a wag. The masonry clearance sucks!!!
I repaired many such water intrusion issues when brick clearance is poor by excavating, removing bricks, installing flashing and making concrete forms set at the proper clearance. Pain in the but working on your knees or sitting down.
Thank you for all your guy’s useful ideas. Could be kind of weep hole venting. Could be the old AC condensation drain or TPR pipe drain.
The two plastic pipes were installed through the middle of a brick and the holes were drilled perfectly.
So basically… the poosey union(s) just refuse to do them any longer as they are too difficult and time consuming, not to mention that nobody (newby millennial’s) knows how to properly do them anymore!!
