In response to Re: leak under foundation
It is filling with water because the water has found, or created, a path under the footing to it. Your leak is most likely at the point where the water line turns to come up through the floor, (it is where 90% of them occur). You should also call your homeowner's insurance company. Many will cover the damage to the house that will occur in the process of repairing the pipe, less your deductible and the cost of actually fixing the pipe itself.

: After noticing that the floor by my sink was very hot, and finding a large amount of hot water in our backyard outside the wall ofour bathroom, we decided we must have a hot water leak. My husband dug a hole outside on the other side of the wall where my sink is and the hole fills up with water even when the hot water is shut off. He has jackhammered through the foundation by my sink and does not see the pipe, but by turning the hot water on and watching, he knows which direction it is coming from. What do we do now and why is the hole outside filled with water? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
