Is there a damp or extra moist area in front or backyard that is usually dry?

Below we have two pictures of a shower breach which had been leaking. The breach is the piece of pipework in-between the Hot and Cold Spindles which allows the water mix. The Top photos shows the old breach which had a leak on the nut that joins the breach and the pipework going to the shower rose.
To Find the leak we pressure tested this pipework and noticed a significant drop after 5 minutes. We had to be 100 Percent sure that the leak was coming from the breach as we would have to open up the tiled wall.
With this in mind we cut a hole in the tiles being careful to only open up the minimum amount of tiles as we understand many of our customers are on a budget.
The second picture shows the completed job and the burst pipe fixed, and in other words another happy customer.
