That carpet story is hilarious! And I can understand why, Kockonit, you don’t want to talk about the patio that was ripped out by mistake. A bad day, yes, but not tragic. Someone getting hurt or killed is a different category, and not really the subject of this post.

In the case of the water welling up from the kitchen, it wasn’t a pipe that was cut. There had been a small pinhole leak in the copper pipe under the slab. Over the course of months or years, a lot of water under pressure had accumulated under the slab. When we cut open the floor, the pressurized water now had a place to go. The trench we made was maybe 12” -16” wide and 8 feet long, and about 12” deep. Not huge. But it kept refilling with water even though the water the kitchen had been turned off.
