As a personal opinion, I would not want a water pipe (I read your next
post), or any pipe that near the frost line going through my tower base.
OTOH, I'm assuming with a 4 call your frost doesn't go near as deep as ours.|
We had near 60 degrees Friday and I have a sidewalk that is standing 4" higher than normal in the center.
I would guess, but don't know, the concrete for the tower base would carry the frost line lower and that would have the potential for freezing and breaking.

I have encountered a water pipe 3/4" in diameter running through the middle of the excavation for my tower. It is down 18" of the 36" depth. Should I move it or pour around it?
