Slab Leaks are not just for older homes in OKC or Edmond

Look out for Gophers and Moles! If you have a newer home chances are the builders used PEX pipe because it is cheaper and easier to work with. The problem is rodents can chew through this pipe very easily. If you see mounds in your yard or your neighbor's, take some proactive steps now. We have been called out to the same houses on several different occasions for the same problem. They sell poisons and traps that have some decent results. Lowe's sells stakes that periodically vibrate and send out a sound the rodents do not enjoy. It would be worth $50 in prevention to save thousands in repairs. We get at least one of these calls a week. Also, if you reroute the plumbing through your attic make sure it is rodent proof. Rats, mice and squirrels also find PEX tasty and then your ceiling is coming down while you endure some indoor rain.

Hope this helps, Dave

Pipe Down was referred to me by a plumber. We had the plumber come out and he told us to call Pipe Down,(Oklahoma City Slab Leak Repair) The owner Dave Stafford came out that day and used a camera to look at our pipes underneath our house. I had called numerous plumbers and no one was able to find the problem, until Pipe Down found the broken pipe. Pipe down did the work under our slab, and I was amazed at how quickly they got the problem fixed. Pipe Down is an awesome company and we did not have anymore problems. The owner Dave Stafford is the most honest man we have ever dealt with. His integrity and honesty is far above any other companies I have had experience with. We were impressed with the company, the work they did, walking us through the experience, and letting us know what was happening each step of the way and unbelievable service. We could not have been more happy and satisfied with the work. I plan on writing a recommendation on the Surrey Hills facebook page of this great company, since that is the neighborhood I live in. Thanks Dave Stafford, you are awesome.
