Plumbing addition under slab foundation

I am self contracting my room addition which includes a new bathroom. I plan to do a lot of the work (if I can). One question I am thinking ahead on is tapping in to the current plumbing which is under the slab. Is this going to include breaking through the current slab in to the bathroom to access the plumbing or digging under the slab to access the plumbing? This might help me determine if I need to contract it out or not?

the answer would depend on the location of the pipes you are trying to get to. either way, you will have to make it in such a way that you have access to any joints or fittings you install. once you connect something to these pipes i would not recommend permanently closing it back up. (for service reasons)

I look at water connections at the water heater and running the new lines in the attic.
New drain, might want to run seperate line and tie it to existing drain line in yard. Put in a cleanout just outside the new slab.

Just a thought, hope it gives you something to think to think about....
