I’m not too concerned since my brother had his first removed about 10 years ago and has had 6 or 7 more. They weren’t deep therefore no grafts.

Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

Expected high today is 57.   For the next 10 days, the high will be 62 this Saturday.   After that until a week after, Highs will be 60.   Wed predicted at 51.    Lows are all in the low  40's for the next 10 days.   This has been a colder than normal spring for PNW.  Where is this global warming we keep hearing about word?

Doing the same with a 4" pipe for roof drains.  I cut a 45 on the end of the PVC pipe.  I then bashed it laterally with a 5 lb sledge against a piece of 2x8 about 8 inches long.  I used the jet spray off a hose to soften the dirt ahead of the pipe and gave it a few more bashes. The water flushes out the dirt and then repeat.  Keep your fingers crossed they didn't bury large rocks or excess cement under the sidewalk.  Mine was pavers so I had to go deep enough to get under the rock fill.  The angle cut on the PVC cuts fairly nicely. I kept the long edge on top to support the dirt above when I sprayed.

My attempt failed. I did not cut a 45 and the clay underneath is packed hard. Going to try again with a 45 cut and a pressure washer for water instead of the jet hose. If at first you don't succeed, we will see what happens the second time.

Have a magnificent day word!

I've got sandy loam, so it easily breaks down with water pressure.  I just have to be careful to not get too far ahead of the tube.  Squirt bash squirt bash

There are people that do Trench less piping.   If at second you don't succeed, you might see if there is anyone in your area that can do this.  I'm sure there is someone there that can do this word.

Plumbers use high pressure water streams to lase paths for underground water pipes rather than dig up an entire year, si0dewealk, driveway.

For me to do that from my main, that would be close to 300 feet and that pipe would have to be very deep.
