A leak in the wall

While doing some touch up painting on the exterior of our house, step son Taylor found a small water leak. The plumbing inside the wall in that spot is a pressurized water line to the frost free faucet for the garden hose at the rear of the house, and the drain for the air conditioning evaporator. When the a/c removes humidity from the air, that condensed water drains through the white pvc pipe you see in this photo. Thankfully this was discovered before it became an ugly, moldy mess.

Next, we’ll repair the drain line. The after the area dries, we will repair and paint the drywall.

With houses as with cars, there’s always something going wrong, something to be fixed.
