Moving kitchen sink drain in slab - will house vibrate much?

16 years ago

Ok, laugh at my question now, then know I'm serious with the asking. We're doing a full kitchen remodel and will be moving our kitchen sink drain a few feet (slab) and adding an additional drain for a second sink. I have no clue how the plumber will 'bust up' the slab foundation, but I'm assuming a jack hammer or similar tool. My question is: How much vibration will there be throughout the house, and more specifically, will any dishware, glass, etc. stored in cabinets and open shelving be in jeapordy in adjacant rooms. I fear our glassware will 'walk' off the shelves due to the vibration. Ok, laugh, then please respond.
