I hate slab leaks, I always try to re-route. Good luck, hope it isn't under the cabinet with the tile counter top :furious:

Next time I get a slab leak, I will call Viega to see if the fitting is listed as being approved for under slab, inside building. A local inspector said it would be cool with him, as long as it was listed as approved by the manufacturer. Easier then brazing. :thumbup:

Good luck and have fun!

Done, thank goodness the concrete cutting company works on weekend emergencies, or I'd still be there, never did see the problem spot but is was beneath the footing, did a slight reroute, 6.25 hrs each with a helper. Forgot to get pictures. American Leak Detectors sure to charge allot on a Sunday, but was will worth it. We have reason to believe a capped line came apart under the slab.

i wish i still got payed commmission. i worked for a local company that was bought and "incorporated" into another local company that is a national franchise. the owners are doing very well, i'm making less than 75% of what i did last year.

oh, i love slab leaks. i don't like doing the leak detection too much, i always get nervous when i blow open the slab but i've yet to be off my more than a foot or so.
