My house is 30 years old. A water pipe is leaking into the slab of my house. The plumber offers me to iron a pipe in the slab. But I am worried that this intervention weakens the slab and also the other pipes. Apart from the aesthetic satisfaction of not having an apparent pipe, Is this a good solution?
The solution proposed by your plumber - if it is a question of passing a pipeline into the existing one - remove the leak without heavy work. It is a widespread and reliable method. The theoretical disadvantage lies in the reduction of the diameter of the pipe, which can be penalizing in some cases.
Professionals do little "reverse", compared to recessed pipes. In the long term, pipes left exposed, despite all their faults: aesthetics, dust nests, risks of shocks, etc. remain the simplest to repair or replace.
