|In response to Re: rerouting plumbing lines in slab foundation|
: Yes the slab can be opened and the piping rerouted. Any distance can be opened, you can put the plumbing in the middle of the room in an island if you want to. The srtuctural ability of the slab to stay efficient years down the road depends upon the quality of soil compaction and concrete reinforcement that goes into the replacement of the concrete when the piping is rerouted. The house may have a four inch slab with 20thousand pound per square foot concrete mix in place, and you can replace it with the same mixture or even stronger if you'd care to. Contact a LICENSED plumber to estimate the installation for you and check what the distances you are looking for will do to impact the foundation.
