Sleeve is short

Gil, if you have poured concrete basement walls, that sleeve only goes through the wall. Common practice when pouring the wall is to put a pvc sleeve inside the wall forms at the appropriate points of entry; this way they don't have to drill holes afterwards. Sometimes the sleeve is then removed; often it's left in place. No problem with it being there, and quite probably what happened was the wall waterproofing was done before the pipe was installed (also common), and either a poor, or no attempt was made to do any further waterproofing outside around the pipe itself, relying on the mortar fill around the pipe.
