How To Tunnel Under Concrete Slab For Plumbing Repairs

If you need to excavate under a concrete slab, there are some things you will want to consider before getting started. The first thing is safety. The owner of our company will work with the excavation team to ensure a safety plan is set in place for the project. We make sure the plumber has identified where the pipe break or leak is to determine how many linear feet we need to dig out. We also make sure the excavator has an accurate map drawn of where we will be digging. The next thing is to determine how deep under the slab we need to go in order for our plumber to access, repair, or replace the pipes.

- - How Deep Should We Dig?

After determining how many linear feet there are, it’s time to find out how deep below grade that pipe needs to be accessed so that the plumber can do their job.

– Safety. You should always pay special attention to safety and comply with local regulations, especially if you are working in an urban or industrial area. For example, one of the most important pieces of equipment for excavation work is a respirator mask that will protect your respiratory system from noxious fumes from oil paints, adhesives, and sealants

A company like digs and excavates tunnels that go 3 feet deep and 3 feet wide. We create access holes that provide easy access for the plumbers to enter and exit the under slab tunneling. They can dig up to 6 feet deep if they need to find a broken pipe. If there are beams in the digger’s path, then he will need to take out the dirt. If we need to make repairs to the sewer line, we need to excavate trenches to install new water and sewer lines.
