    allow me to be the first outsider to say, "nice job, slick!"

    we all do it, it'll turn out fine

    reminds me of the time my dad was using the electric chain saw inside the house (dont ask) to remove some flooring...we can get just a "little closer" to this water line...

    yes, the line was not turned off...

      would a thermal imaging camera have helped to easily locate the lines in the slab?

      of course a pipe locator would assist, but not as fast as a camera.

        I usually crank up the boiler for an hour, then use My Raytec Lazer temp Gun. It shows a 15 degree difference on each copper line. I was so close to the outside , I never thought I'd hit a line!
        In Your opinion should I eat the repair ? Thanks tool

          yes, unless you wrote a disclaimer about buried utilities. especially if you were aware of the potential since it's in your hood.

          pretty simple fix and your customer will be very happy you fixed it with no extras.

            Since you usually do, but didn't, and hit the line, you need to eat the repair costs. It's the fair thing to do.
