 water lines
Author: brittontracie (WV)

I found a house that I want to buy, but it comes as is, I believe it has a problem with the water lines under the concrete basement floor. I wanted to know if it was possible to just run new water lines rather than repairing. :) thanks in advance for any help.

EVERYONE who has copper water lines under a cement slab (sooner or later) has to replace them.
just how you go about this depends on the layout of the plumbing along with availability of interior/exterior walls..
the good news is that with the popularity and ease of use of pex piping, the damage caused by ripping open walls is much less than it used to be..
