Guess what? We have two leaks

So we fixed the leak under our kitchen sink and then I called the plumber because the ground was still wet and not drying up. And then in our effort to dig a trench to keep it out of the neighbors yard we had a gush of water come out from under the house. So they came the next day to find a leak under the house by listening to the ground with a giant stethascope. They couldn't find anything. So at that point we didn't know what to do. So one day after work I finally just sat down and started calling plumbers and slab leak specialists. I found one that said they could be there in an hour. He was there till midnight trying to find the leak and he found it. It was under our bathroom the whole time and tracking its way under the house following the downhill slope to the other side of the house.  He came next day they came and fixed the leak  under the house. We had our first big problem and we survived it. The reality of home ownership has set in.
