Total Plumbing takes great pride in our specialty of tunneling under homes to repair water and sewer breaks. We understand these are large jobs that must be handled appropriately to minimize downtime of your water or sewer system. All tunnels we excavate are dug to exact specifications to ensure safety for our clients and our employees. All sewer repairs are anchored to the bottom of your slab using galvanized hangers to maintain proper slope of sewer lines. Engineer’s reports certifying that the backfill of dirt was done properly can be provided with every tunnel job we complete. Our team will work together to make sure you are informed and satisfied every step of the way throughout this process.
Jackhammering through a slab foundation is a much simpler process than most people think. Over 20 years of experience in this field has given the experts at Total Plumbing the chance to learn some incredible ways of making this daunting task much easier on our clients. Dust prevention, sound awareness and keeping your home or business a comfortable place to occupy while these repairs are going on is our #1 priority. Most repairs that require a jackhammer can be completed in 1 day. The jackhammer is usually only in use for the first couple hours of the job, making the impact on your family minimal. We always backfill the dirt and re-pour the concrete we remove.
What to Expect:
- Prompt arrival of our technicians
- Multiple dust prevention methods
- Courtesy to your family throughout the process
- Efficient work schedule
- Expert diagnosis and repair of your problem
- We WILL leave your home cleaner than when we arrived
- Competitive pricing due to our specialization in jackhammer repairs
Older sewer systems made up of cast iron pipe can rot from old age and being in the ground with the moisture over many years. Instead of tunneling or jackhammering multiple holes in your foundation, in some cases we can reroute your sewer lines. Rerouting of your sewer lines is the process of abandoning all of the old sewer lines under your foundation and installing new PVC sewer lines in the yard around your home. This eliminates the need of ever having to go under the slab again to make a repair.
Repairing of sewer lines under the slab or in the yard of homes has become common practice for us here at Total Plumbing. Our courteous and polite technicians will repair your sewer line quickly using only the highest grade materials available to ensure these repairs last for years, even under the harshest conditions.
Repairing copper water lines under the slab requires a special process called brazing, or silver soldering. Brazing is completely different from the normal soldering you see plumbers do above slab foundations. It’s a specialized skill that requires the technician to get the pipe glowing hot and use silver solder to bond the copper together. Many people say that a properly silver soldered joint is as strong as a solid piece of pipe. Brazing or silver soldering is the ONLY way our skilled technicians at Total Plumbing will repair a copper water line under a slab foundation.

Had them referred to me by a family friend. They are fair, transparent, and honest each time I've needed their work. Couldn't imagine going to anyone else for future plumbing issues.

James and Billy did an extraordinary job installing three water heaters at the same time. James, who managed the project, is very conscientious and wanted to be sure everything was done perfectly when he balanced the system. Billy was terrific and also wanted the installation to be done right. I would recommend Total Plumbing to anyone with great confidence.

Just want to make sure I review companies that do a good job to help others. I had a new dishwasher that needed to be installed but a pipe was blocking access to the installation. They came out to cut the pipe and fit it behind the cabinet. They did a good job on that and also fixed a leaky sink. I had an issue with my garbage disposal afterwards and they came out promptly to fix it. Sergio was very polite and helpful in explaining what needed to be done. I was happy with the job done and also the level of customer service i got when i called for a follow up issue. Thank you.
