I have water leak under the concrete ground in the basement. There is no visible water. But the sound is coming right where the water pipe comes up from the slab. The meter isnt running because it's before the meter. I called a plumber and was quoted $1800 to jackhammer that area and repair the leak only. (old house, probably better to just replace the whole thing to the city main line). The cost to go all the way out to the city line is $6900. I have a couple of questions. Are those pricing reasonable? He explained to me that he must cut up my concrete driveway to replace the entire pipe. Might be a dumb question but is that even necessary? can't he just dig a hole in my basement/garage where the pipe is coming up from and dig a hole on the street where the main line is? instead of messing up my entire driveway.
