Help find the leak!!

My customer has a spray zone that encircles the foundation of the house. The leak was found in the back of the house (the downslope side), but digging and more digging revealed that the closest pipe and swing joint fittings are fine, the water is coming from under the house (from uphill).

So far I have probed the entire side and front of the house without finding a wet spot and grabbed and pulled on each sprayhead to see if maybe there was a bad nipple.

The only thing I can think is the leak is on the lower side of a pipe and the jet action and downhill nature of the property kept the water from surfacing.

Anybody have a suggestion for finding the leak???

I've already referred a foundation repair specialist.
