PBT Water Line
 
Ok....so I live in a townhouse in Maryland, my PBT water line comes in about 3' above the slab through the foundation wall. I have discovered that in my front yard a worrying amount of "squishyness", my guess is a PBT crack/break. I've removed my garden hose with the hope that the water was on...and that it was leaking out the bottom of the hose winder....(wishful thinking).

So the question I have is, with no basement floor to dig up, roughly how much should I expect the replacement to cost me.

You should call local plumbers for free estimates, too many thing to factor in, i.e. trees shrubs, type of ground, depth of line, see what I'm saying?

other than a squishy patch...any other signs to look for ?

Check water meter see if it is always turning.

Find the main service shut off for home and turn off, if meter still turning leak between shut off and meter.
