I'm no expert, but I wonder if putting some RidX down the pipe would decompose the material. Or you could flush it with a hose.

If you can't fix it from the back, you'll need to carefully remove exiting tiles, scrape them clean (very tedious), remove existing wallboard, replace valve set, repair wall board, and reinstall...

Not over sprsy. I don't know what's different, but the Spectracide rep told me to use their product and if it didn't work he would pay for it. That's one of their selling points.

Sell it cheap and get rid of it. Make sure you tell potential buyer everything. Sell AS IS. And sell it only to a stranger.. No friends or family.

I don't recommend it, but back in the 70's (and maybe still) many homes were built without isolation valves at all. You could just remove valve and sweat elbows.
