We get it all the time, customer states that they have a plumbing leak in the yard and want  our Apopka plumber to fix it. When the plumber arrives they find the ground spongy and very wet. When they look at the meter for any water movement there is none. Then we ask how is the cost of the water bill and they state normal. Well in these cases the plumbing issue is not a leak but high ground water. Many ask how can this be resolved and the best way is to install a french drain in the area that is affected. To do this the plumber would have to dig up the area and install a 4 inch drain with holes in it, often called a sock pipe. This kind of pipe would be installed and ran to a low area in the yard or retention ditch. The ground water would then enter into the pipe through the holes and travel to the low line area in your yard. In most cases this type of drainage system would resolve your high water table issues. The french drain is fairly easy to install but is best left up to a reputable plumbing contractor.
