Total replumbing commonly in the few thousand to ten thousand range depending on house size and layout, whether flex or rigid pipe is (or has to by code) be used, and the type of interior finishes that have to be repaired after replacing the piping - which can easily equal the cost of the plumbing itself.



Tends to be more in old homes and in warm country areas where they tend to run the pipes all over the place at will, and least in cold country homes less than a few decades old where they used a "utilityi core" design with almost all the piping (typically except kitchen) in a very limited area in basement or garage and then up into immediately overlying bathrooms.



Unless you have been having a lot of leaks or have very corroded or mineral-blocked pipes, a total replumb is a pretty severe action in response to an in- or under-slab leak. I would be looking at getting the pipes out of the slab maybe - here is a link to a similar situation (for different reason) I just answered which might help-

I would certainly get the opinion (and bids) from several plumbers for both options - total replumb, and just get the water pipes out of the slab. Leaving sewer pipes, the more expensive ones to relocate, in is usually nowhere as big an issue unless they are asbestos, asphalt paper, or cast iron AND are literally wearing out or eroding/rusting through.
