Let's consider the cost of repairing a single line water leak under the slab also known as a slab leak. If you use Leak Star Advanced Leak Detection repiping service, a single line reroute will cost you $1750 flat rate. That would include the cost of your leak detection. What often happens is that one line is abandoned and rerouted and another separate copper water line springs a leak. It could for instance be the hot water that was fixed the first time, now it's the cold water line either right next to the hot water or in an entirely different location of the house. It could be in the wall or it could be another slab leak.
Once copper pipes start springing leaks it's genreally just a matter of time before more leaks appear. Copper pipes can corrode over time or as is very often the problem in our area, the additives in our municipal water meant to protect us, corrode the inside of the copper pipes. There is nothing that we can really control.
A complete repiping service in Carlsbad or a full repiping service in Encinitas was start at about $5000 for a smaller 3 bedroom. All of your copper pipe will be replaced with PEX pipe so you never have to be concerned about the corrosion of your copper plumbing system again. A small home will take about 3-5 days to complete and usually there is no need for you to leave your home unless you are particularly sensitive to dust.
