You'd have to find the grid to be able to drill a hole to be able to
connect to it. Had I not had a below slab leak a couple years ago, I
wouldn't be to sanguine about being able to do this. But, after seeing
the guys find the tensioning cables and the leaking pipe, from the top
of the slab, and cut a 1 foot square hole directly above the leak,
missing the tensioning cables, I think it's doable.
You'd need to find a good way to connect to the rebar/grid, though.
