Water seepage into foundation wall
I have a water spigot attached to the outer wall of my house and a garden hose connected to it. I recently discovered that there was a problem with the valve and it had been dripping water around the foundation for sometime. I replaced the valve and fixed the leak. I found that water has seeped into the foundation wall causing a crack about 1/8 inches wide in one of the concrete blocks that comprise the foundation wall. The leak has caused a vertical crack (about 1/4 inches) on the interior side of the wall where the spigot is attached.
Do I need to get this checked out by some foundation expert? Even though I have fixed the leak, a little bit of water drips out of the spigot whenever it is closed or the impact sprinkler connected to the hose is removed. Is this serious enough to cause the crack to widen? Is there some DIY method to head off potential damage?
I have posted pictures of the interior and exterior walls at the URL link.
