Water Shut Off Valve and Tree Roots
Our water shut-off valve comes through the foundation wall and hair-like tree roots have gotten through all around where the pipe comes in bringing in dirt and moisture along with them. It looks like the former owner tried to tar over it, but this did not work and the tree roots came right through. We noticed this when we got water in our basement after a heavy rain. Is there anything we can use to stop the tree roots or do we have to dig up the front yard and sever the roots there? I will post pics in a little bit.
