I had bad mortar and it appeared the water was very slowly pouring out between the bricks of my 100 year old home. I started re-pointing the bricks in this location. As a result the water disappeared but there seams to be a line where the face of the bricks fell off (some were covered with salt). Also below this line the bricks darkened. I also parged the foundation and it looks like I have wet spots. I did this work about three months ago. Any ideas on what is happening.
