In response to Re: Replumbing of inslab copper.
: If you repair under slab or under ground make sure you check with the supplier and purchase the correct piping for this installation. In most areas building codes require a specific copper pipe type for this repair.


Carl: What is it that you would like to do?
: You can insert a smaller size tube in the one
: that has failed.

: You can attempt to pull new lines under the slab
: while pulling the old ones out.

: You can break up the floor and make a repair on
: the leaking section.

: You can repipe overhead with Copper,CPVC,HDPE or
: other approved piping material.
:
: If you intend to repair the existing copper piping
: system,give some consideration to installing a "Copper Knight" to protect from additional pin
: hole leaks in your piping.
