In case you are not I'll give you a brief summary.
February 2010 we had our first slab leak.
October 2010, 2nd slab leak. This is when we had the pipes coated with Ace DuraFlo to prevent future leaks. This process came with a lifetime warranty.
November 2010, 3rd slab leak. Covered under warranty.
October 2011, 4th slab leak. Covered under warranty.
July 2012, 5th slab leak. Coverage to be determined.
August 2012, it appears we have our 6th slab leak. The epic battle continues.
And now I will inundate you with pictures of our latest round of pipe repair.

|Outside hole. Full of water from the leak.|
|Dirt from hole.|
|Larger mound of dirt from larger hole.|
|The pictures don't do it justice. One of the plumbers actually crawled into that hole and under the house to reach the pipe.|
|Random picture of my adorable children sleeping. They have been camping out in the living room while their floor is pulled up because of the water leaking into their room.|
I went out to check today and sure enough it was still spinning. The hole outside is full of water.

|Hole with water.|
Also we found a wet spot in the top of the bathroom cabinet. We assumed it came from the bathtub upstairs.
|Which has now molded.|
|You know I LOVE mold in the bathroom!!|
The plumbers investigated and found no signs of a leak coming from the bathtub. And then they opened the closet with the AC unit.
|And found water everywhere. On the floor,|
|the walls, ceiling above the unit,|
|Puddle in the hole/patch left from slab leak #1.|
|Water in the bottom of the bathroom cabinet.|
Oh, and my favorite tree is officially dead.
