Slab Leak Repair Process

There are different methods to repairing an under the slab leak.  These examples below use the process of plumbing pipe rerouting. Many times a water pipe can be rerouted outside of the concrete slab, so we don’t have to dig up the concrete foundation.  A plumbing reroute can be done in walls and ceilings as show below.
