Water Line Repair
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.
Do you have cracks in your ground or around your house from all of this heat? All parts of the Dallas metroplex have experienced extreme heat and drought type conditions over the Summer months. This has caused the ground to shrink, crack and become very dry.
As a plumber, we pay special attention to the parkway area where your main water valve is located. This area is especially vulnerable during this time or extreme heat and dry weather.
One of the best things you can do is inspect your area around the water meter. Since the ground is so dry, the water is not appearing at the top of the soil as it normally would, which means it is incredibly hard to tell if you have any leaks, pipe breaks or cracks.
Total Plumbing offers leak location services and can repair any pipe breaks, cracks or other issues causing water to leak.

Professional, honest and fairly priced. Couldn't have asked for more.
- J C Snead
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.

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.
