Identify a pipe for me?


I am sprucing up my garage and found a 3/4" pvc pipe that runs into the ground/slab. It has been capped and is bone dry inside. It is near my washing machine which is on the opposite of the wall in a laundry room if that helps. I have absolutely no idea what this could be...any thoughts? It was run under a little raised platform for my furnace and the capped end was left exposed almost as if they were planning on having a sink in the garage or something, but I would think that 3/4" would be too small for a drain.

I think it might be the original condensate drain for the original ac. My current drain pipe runs along the wall in the same vicinity as the unidentified pipe. I'm now thinking that when I bought the house, and had a new ac installed as part of the deal, that the guys rerouted the drain pipe.

I'm thinking a scope would be the only way to know for sure at this point??
