Update on my flooding. [View all]

I posted this in a thread on Sunday.

Since then the plumber and Leak Detection service have been here. Now waiting for insurance adjuster. Will need all new floors, baseboards and some drywall.

Have been w/o water since last Friday night and will probably be w/o for another week. Plumber wants to repipe the house rather than just jack hammer the slab to fix the leak. Said if I had one pin hole leak in my pipes, it's not a matter of if, but when another leak will occur. House is only 17 years old, but evidently the water in this area is very corrosive on copper pipes. If anyone has had this issue, any advice? I think I'm going with the repiping, can't go through this again.

Anyway looking at probably a month to restore the house.
