Why Concrete Slabs Make Plumbing More Challenging
While there are benefits of using a slab foundation over a traditional foundation, they also pose unique plumbing challenges. For example, it’s extremely difficult to cut through the concrete slab to reach damaged pipes. More so, while fixing one piece of pipe, you can easily accidentally damage another part of the plumbing while cutting or jackhammering concrete.
Installing plumbing in a new slab foundation also has its own challenges, and if you’re building a new home, make sure that you utilize a plumber with experience with under slab plumbing.
Common Causes of Slab Leaks
Like all plumbing problems, leaks occur over time as the pipes age. Even the strongest materials experience wear and tear, and if your pipes are old, they are more likely to spring a leak. If you have a much older home, your plumbing may be made with galvanized pipe, which can rust over time and lead to leaks and water contamination.
Other factors beyond age also affect slab leaks, such as pressure from tree roots or the freeze and thaw cycle. The good news is, your leaks can be repaired! Contact the team at Plumbing Solutions for under slab plumbing.
THE PLUMBING SOLUTIONS DIFFERENCE
SLAB UNDER PLUMBING
Many homes nowadays are built on concrete slabs. Prior to pouring the concrete, the plumbing pipes are laid in the dirt. This allows for your tubs, toilets, and other drains in your home to drain down, under the slab, and out into your main sewer line or septic tank. This is referred to Slab Under Plumbing.

ROUGH IN PLUMBING
Rough in plumbing is the plumbing work that must take place prior to closing up your walls and ceilings. This takes place when the home is in it’s framing stage. Based on measurements from plans and specifications from fixtures, water lines, drain lines, vent piping, and major fixtures, such as tub units, are installed in place. It is vital to secure the plumbing to prevent movement and loose fixtures. After installation, a test is put on the water and drain systems using water and pressure to insure there are no leaks or issues with the rough in plumbing

TRIM OUT PLUMBING
Trim out plumbing takes place after the interior of the house begins to come together. Drywall is up, cabinets and counter tops have been installed, and a coat of paint has already been put on. Trim out plumbing consists of the installation of the fixtures you are familiar with, such as toilets, faucets, and water heater. Once all fixtures have been trimmed out, water can be connected to the house and at the water source, to test out the trim out plumbing that was installed. Once connected and tested, the plumbing will be ready for normal use.
