Main drain line leak or foundation leak
 
2 Attachment(s)

This is in my sister-in-laws basement. Now I'm thinking that it's most likely the drain line that goes out to the septic tank that is cracked in between the cinder block wall then running down and out the crease between floor and wall because that's where there water sits.
Now the pipe and interior wall are dry but the brown stain underneath leads me to no other cause except foundation leak but the water is always there.

Now I haven't opened the clean out nor did i start digging the outside of the wall.

So should I start digging and hope the crack is on the outside or do I look in the clean out 1st?

Or
Acid wash the wall, scrap, clean and hydro cement the crack and put the rubber extreme drylock on the wall and hope for the best.

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Mark
