Leak was going directly into foundation drainage with no surfacing.

The leak was a crack in the 1.25 " copper. Originally I was just going to do a nostop repair coupler but the copper was crush and in such a oval shape I couldn't shape it back..

Come to find out the copper was only 8' long as it was poly from the meter and then converted to CPVC inside the crawlspace.

Technically to code copper entering into the house is what it's supposed to be. But I just extended the 200 psi poly up to the CPVC. The water district guys actually stopped by while I was on this job.. It's always fun to BS with those guys. They didn't care- he was surprised I found the leak

I forgot to take a few pics on this job
