Repairing your plumbing leak could still be an option. If the timing is bad, finances just aren't available, then certainly a plumbing repair of the specific leaking pipe is always an option. A plumbing repair will get you back up and running quickly and with minimal costs by comparison. If however your plumbing is older or is copper that has been affected by additives in our water or you have experience multiple plumbing leaks in your water pipes or you have an under concrete slab leak.....then really a reroute or repipe is something your must consider.
Reroutes are the best and in our opinion the only option when your plumbing leak is under the slab. There is no need to tear up your flooring and jack hammer a hole in the concrete to fix the leaking pipe. Not only is that costly, destructive and disruptive to your life, but very often when a copper pipe springs a leak, it is very like to spring a leak in the future.
Are re-route will simply bypass the faulty plumbing no matter what the plumbing materials that were used. Damage to drywall can be minimal IF your plumber really understands plumbing from the ground up. Timo owner of Leak Star has spent decades as a plumbing contractor. Timo has actually installed the plumbing in countless San Diego homes.
Using a repiping service in Carlsbad is your wisest choice under these kinds of circumstances. A repipe using PEX pipe can be done in a few days depending on the size of your home. Leak Star is very careful to to construction noise and dust down to a minimum. Most of the time our families stay in their homes during the entire process. Not only is damage minimal, but by using PEX pipe the cost to your wallet will be a lot less difficult to cope with.
If your prefer for us to use copper pipe to do your repipe, Leak Star is more than qualified to do so.
Here is a review from a mom with a new baby who stayed in their home while Leak Star completed the work.
"Our project was not only to fix the leak, but to re-route the lines which was an all day job that was started the next day at 8AM since it would require 2 members. During the job, they were tidy which was important to me given that I was taking care of a newborn at the time." Bony in Encinitas from Yelp
