We had a gas stub for a BBQ installed by Amco and we are pleased with both the neat job they did and the estimate. Howard, the owner sent a great worker to our home and he supervised the work. Howard explained all the materials needed and we agreed. There were no hidden costs. Honestly, I would use them again for ANY of our plumbing needs. This was a very pleasant experience.

Many homes built in Southern Nevada and throughout the Southwest, from the mid 70’s through 1999, were constructed on concrete slab foundations. During construction, soft rolled copper water lines were placed in the soil just below the concrete slab floor. Building codes at the time did not permit the use of hard rigid copper, as rigid copper is produced in 10 and 20 foot lengths and no joints, soldered or otherwise were allowed beneath the concrete slab. As a result, only long lengths of soft rolled copper, which is pliable, could be installed. Soft copper, which is easily bent, was rolled out in the soil from fixture to fixture and bent up through the concrete slab. The generally accepted method of installation was to begin at the water meter and roll the soft copper to the shut off valve in the front yard. From there it was rolled out to the water heater location which was generally in the garage and then it would be stubbed up through the concrete and looped from fixture to fixture. At the water heater location, a manifold was installed and both a hot and cold water line were looped throughout the house in the soil from fixture to fixture and left sticking up out of the ground and the new concrete slab was poured over the soft copper. After the house was framed by carpenters, plumbers would install “type M” hard copper piping in the walls and connect it to the soft rolled copper protruding from the slab.
When we refer to concrete slab leaks, it is the soft rolled copper pipe in the soil below the concrete, not actually embedded in the slab of concrete. The copper protruding though the concrete at each fixture location is sleeved in light weight plastic, which is red or blue in color, to designate the hot or cold water line.
