We moved into our house last August. I remember at the time we did the home inspection, the inspector found that the main house valve had a slight leak (and a bucket underneath it).

Although we didn't ask for repair, by the time we moved in, the bucket was gone and the valve did not appear to be leaking (no water on the floor in all these months).

However, the valve itself is typically wet, as if it's condensation... or perhaps a very slow leak.

I have a recommendation from a plumper from a neighbor, who I need to bring in for a few other things, but before I do I wanted to see if this is a problem I need to add to the list. Is condensation the main valve typical? A sign of a problem/leak? Is there any check I should do to determine which?
