Replaced Main Home Water Line with Copper Line

Main Water line Replaced from House; from house to tie in to main city water supply

*Options I considered for this project:

1. Find the Leak, drill down into concrete, fix leak and patch up driveway

2. Burrow underneath driveway to find leak and repair

3. Replace Line

*Questions and unexpected events that arose during the project:

How to find the leak - need listening device from professional plumber

How to repair once leak was found - how much concrete to tear up and replace

Cost of Copper Line and whether that was good investment

* Cost Comments:
