Discharge of water from damaged/leaking plumbing and overflow pipes from air condition units directly to ground can compromise the building and provide a concentrated moisture source for foraging termites.
Termites could exploit this constant supply of moisture and possibly establish a colony close to the building from this moisture source.
We advise to repair all damaged plumbing. Air Conditioning and Hot Water System discharge pipes can be either extended to a nearby drain or directed further away from the building to alleviate this problem.
We recommended to seek further advice from a licensed plumber.
