So, I crawled under the house and my light came unplugged..... and then I crawled out and plugged it back in.... and then crawled back under..... it is really wet under there especially where the kitchen/fullbath/laundry/halfbath plumbing all meet.... and.. as I was shining the light up towards the pipes.... it came unplugged again.... so, with what little light I had, the pipes are either sweating or they are leaking... it is only 78 today outside... and the ground is eroded in a few places under there.....
I am amazed at the shut off valves under the house..... what in the world is the purpose of 8 shut offs in 1100 square feet with 1.5 baths?
anyways..... I may go ahead and call a plumber monday... I mean.. my water bill is $80 a month and has been for a long time...
Wish I could have had someone with me to turn the water on and off in the house... but oh well.....
We shall see, we shall see!!!!

I have seen pipes with so much condensate dripping off them they though there was a leak.

Check for a leaking flapper in a toilet. That is a frequent cause.
