Default Plumbers that can do a side job tomorrow?

I came home to find half my house flooded today. Turns out I have a slab leak just under my water heater. I need to get this fixed ASAP and was just quote $3-4,000. It's a long shot but is there anyone on the board that can donit, save me a bit, and pad their own pockets at the same time? I will probably just have the pros do it but thought I would throw this out there.

thats not a bad emergency price. I had it done a couple years ago and had to have the locator come out and find the leak. Just because its leaking from under the heater doesn't mean that's where the leak is. Once the leak was located then the crew with the jack hammer and power tools came out.

Make sure anybody that is drilling through your slab is doing dust/silica mitigation, the guys that did mine did nothing and the house was super nasty from all the dust

Hilti has some good info on the silica dust and the new osha regs
