I have no idea what form this goes under.

House built around 1933, in the basement utility room were the HVAC equipment has always been there is this small pipe coming through the front foundation wall. A funnel has been places under it along with a garden hose that leads over to the sump. What is / was this pipe for?

My only guess is perhaps something left over from an old oil burner or old furnace system. I really don?t know but told the buyer I would try to find out.

Any attic mounted air handlers? Maybe a condensate drain. Perhaps they took advantage of existing boiler pipe to provide route for condensate drainage to sump pit.

Good thought, but no. This pipe comes through the front foundation wall under the windoes to the right of the front door. There is living area above.
