Another common find on my inspection today. This is an irrigation supply line. It is the transition from a brass irrigation shut off valve to the pvc underground line. The white debris on the pvc is a calcium/mineral build up. Whether it is actively leaking or not, this is something that needs to be fixed. Here's why.
1. You pay for your water usage. These types of leaks can add up and cost you a substantial amount cash.
2. We live in the desert. All types of critters such as scorpions and termites are attracted to moisture.
3. Your concrete foundation can be affected by the constant moisture penetrating your home.
Typical things like this that get overlooked can bite you in the butt later.
(no pun intended)
