It’s only 2 months old lol we’re the first owners!

When was the foundation poured? Were you there for it? Could very well be cracks developed over time as the concrete has cured. I've seen what they put into foundation walls in homes and it's not always the best Quality concrete which can lead to this stuff

Foundation was poured in 2019. There’s no cracks, so that’s good news. I removed the dry wall to inspect. I’m thinking the lack of the waterproof liner on the exterior is what’s causing this.

Well, good news , foundation issue is “fixed”. No more leaks.

so back to the build! Has any one ever wished they would’ve gone closed loop? Would it be hard to add after the fact? Drilled many many tanks, just wondering if I’ll notice any benefits.

current flow plans: 4x Mp40 and 2x gyre fx280 , was thinking about using the cor20 as a closed loop pump?
