Its going to be a hassle for you to dig up your yard amongst tree roots
(?) / rocks / clay (?) etc... , get the village water dept to come out
and shut off your water at the street, you make the repair (solder ??) ,
have the water dept come back to turn it on, maybe it will still
leak...etc.... In my opinion, some jobs are best left to contractors
who have the experience , will hopefully do it right the first time, and
give you a written warranty for thier work. Id ask around for a
reliable , honest Plumbing Company.
