re-routing water supply
 
I am remodeling a shower and I need to move the water lines from one wall to the adjacent one. These lines come up from a cement slab. My question is, should I just chip away at the slab, connect a 90 elbow and then run the lines thru a channel to the adjacent wall. The old connections must be flush to the slab. I'm concerned about ibeddinglpeding the connections in the slab

Well that makes little since to me, go back a read your own post.

A few questions your going to be asked are, what to you mean by "flush with the slab", and what type plumbing do you have?

The plumbing needs to be run below the slab not through it. Concrete erodes most forms of plumbing.

What do you mean by chipping away at the slab? It should be cut with a diamond blade then break out the space in between the cuts.

Thanx for your response, but after giving a little more thought, my best bet is to come in from above by tapping into the water heater supply line. Now my concerne is , what is the best way to cap the lines in the slab so I can tile over it.

I would chip all around it and undercut it so the cap will be just under the floor surface, cap it and fill the hole with cement and then tile.
