My in-laws have a house on the water in the Florida Keys. There is mildew on
the base molding in one of the rooms. Room is on the street side about 300
feet from water. There is pipe leaking.
On the outside wall was a copper pipe that was crimped. There were signs of
drainage. I chipped out around the pipe. It comes from the foundation
upward and then outside. I tried to drill a hole from outside to see where
it came out on the inside of the house. As I'm drilling, there is water
seeping from the hole. No, I didn't hit a pipe. And the hole is below the
inside floor. I was thinking of drilling other holes in the vicinity to see
if that also happens.
Any idea on what is happening?
