Plumbing Tunneling Services

You have just been informed that there is a leak in or under your slab foundation that requires plumbing repair. Maybe your mind goes to visions of jackhammers dancing in your head (not as nice as sugarplums no matter what time of year it is). Or maybe you are not sure what to expect at all, except that it sounds messy.

Just imagine all the mess that would result from someone breaking a hole in the floor of your home with a jackhammer. That room becomes a disaster zone and then you have to clean up a big mess. It’s in the kitchen too, and you probably won’t be able to use that room for a while so . . . What if I told you it didn’t have to be that way?

Why Hire an Expert?

There’s this thing called under-slab tunneling that keeps all the mess away and allows you to continue using your home as usual. This method allows for any repairs that need to be done underneath and outside the home to be completed with no holes or debris inside the house. Seems like a huge plus, right?

At South Florida Backflow & Plumbing, under-slab tunneling is one of our primary services and we regularly tunnel under homes. Because we do this quite a bit, our team of professional experts knows the proper techniques to remove and then replace the dirt under your home with future stability in mind at all times.

It sounds complicated, but it’s pretty straightforward. A crew would dig underneath the concrete slab foundation of your home to reach a certain point where plumbing repairs need to be made. They use specialized shovels and tons of hard dirty work to dig a precise 3-foot by 3-foot square tunnel under your home.

We put a plan together that reaches the needed location using the shortest length of tunnel possible. Keeping the tunnel as short as possible ensures the lowest cost as well as the fastest, most efficient route.

The Benefits of Under-Slab Tunneling

The #1 benefit of using under-slab tunneling is that there is no mess inside the home when repairing a plumbing issue. Having under-slab plumbing fixed without tunneling can be intrusive to your daily life in many ways.

A disaster zone best describes what a home looks like while having portions of the foundation torn up for under-slab plumbing repair. A crew would jackhammer through the concrete, producing excessive noise, dust, and debris. So much for naps and Zoom meetings . . .

Dirt will be piled somewhere nearby the access point and you would likely need to avoid the area completely during the entire process. Since we know that this repair is to address plumbing issues, the area you have to avoid in your home is probably a kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room. You didn’t really need to shower, did you?

Not to mention all the people that will be coming in and out of your home to do all this work. Sounds fun, right?

On top of having the mess in your home, how long the repair takes will be how long you have to live with that massive hole in the floor. You might even consider moving out temporarily to avoid living in the situation. That is an added cost or inconvenience as well.

Using under-slab tunneling prevents all these problems. We’re a big fan of tunneling in case you couldn’t tell.
