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.

I recently had to have both of the shut off valves for my washing machine replaced as well as the box. Evan, the gentleman who was sent out to do the work, exceeded my expectations. He was extremely polite, honest, tidy, and efficient. He was also more than willing to answer all of my questions and explain everything to me so that I could better understand the process. And most importantly, he is extremely knowledgeable about his job. Another gentleman named Cooper was there and he is also very friendly and knowledgeable. Anything plumbing related is very stressful for me and I felt more than comfortable with Total Plumbing doing the necessary repairs. I would recommend this company to anyone who is need of plumbing work. Another thing to mention is that they both wore masks the entire time which I very much appreciate during these times. Thank you again Evan and Cooper for doing such a great job!
