Default Need a plumber

Guys, have a small leak in the foundation of our house. We are looking at a re route over to keep from digging up the slab and replacing floors again.(had a leak about a year ago, almost same spot it seems but cold water this time)

Guy came and found leak and to run a re route of the hot and cold over about 25-30ft and down to the bedroom/bathroom side manifold would run $4600 taking about half a day. Seems a bit high to run Pex and insulate it but looking for help and opinions.

We have water on and off as we turn off at night and when we arenít using it but would like to get it fixed ASAP.

Scott

I had the same thing happen...they had to open the wall by the kitchen and by the bathroom on the other side of the house. Ran PEX up into the attic from one manifold to the other and charged me $400. I fixed the sheetrock holes myself. I know this does not really help you, I just commented because the price u were quoted seems high

C&W plumbing.

$4600 seems high for Pex and one drop.

Love Field was out today and found the leak. (Not on the line the last plumber thought it was) and got us water again without leaks.

Guys are great and its been a great fix so far. Just a bit more touch up tomorrow and we are back to normal!!
