Water leakage

I have quite a bit of water leakage in my garage from a spigot that was added next to a old water softener that is no longer used. It happens at least once a month. Iíve also noted that no major water usage was being done (showering, washing machine, dishwasher ect...) to cause this amount of water to be in my garage. Any ideas as to what may cause this and how I can repair problem.

Welcome to the forums.

Hard to envision what you have there. Can you take a few pictures and post them for us.

If that water was coming from the plumbing..... it should be wet.
Is it wet inside the wall ?

You said it happens occasionally. That would almost point to rain water leaking in.
Could that be possible ?

Typically when a pipe or plumbing fitting leaks.... it gets worse.... it doesn't come and go.

Your softener would have required a drain. That could possibly be overflowing.

Might your softener still be plugged in? Softeners go through a recharge cycle every 5 days or so, which expels a few gallons of water usually outside or into the drain plumbing. Maybe the softener is recharging and overflowing the outflow?
