Dana,
The typical way to proceed on these is to X-Ray the slab to find the cables. Terry


: : My husband and I plan to remodel our 25 year old home. We intend to make extensive changes to the kitchen, laundry room, and downstairs bathroom. Neighbors tell me the homes in our tract were built on post-tension slabs and we will not be able to cut into the slab to make the plumbing changes we desire. Is this true?

: : Thank you,
: : Dana

: That would be very hard to answer without seeing the job. Call the building inspector and they may know your construction. I would be suprised if you where the only one in the area that remodeled you kitchen in the area. General contractors would also beable to help you after inspection.
: Good Luck, Joe
