    Hi,
    I revealed a good 2 meters of a soil pipe as part of an extension footings dig and accidently broke a bit out of the clay public soil pipe which comes across our garden. Its right on the connection of 2 pipes and from what I can see it was almost butted up against each other rather than inserted - but anyway.

    Any ideas how I would fix it? As said its easy to get to so shouldn't be a problem unless one of my neighbours has a turn out whilst Im fixing it.

    Would it be a question of cutting out a section of the pipe and then putting a joiner back over the two with jubilee clips or something?

    Thanks

    Normally 2 fernco connectors and a section of 110mm pipework. ;)

    Thanks for the info now all I need to find is some soil pipe 3 meters is a bit extreme for what I need.

    I took a picture showing just how poorly these pipes were connected. Im also thinking its only serving a gutter but links into the main sewer as a shared service - is that possible?

    Drainpipes discharge into the main sewer in some older properties. It’s not permitted now. Doing it yourself will be significantly cheaper than paying a professional, even assuming you can get someone to quote for such a small job.

    There’s big money in groundworks, the advice on here will save you hundreds even thousands of pounds, Much more than the cost of plastic pipe.

    Thanks on the case with the parts and shouldn't take long to sort. Why is there big money in groundworks - because of the time and tools it takes?

    Normally due to the digging and working with sewage.

    I would try a DC115 on that pipe with the jubilee clip on the clay side backed off, it will be a tight fit but could give a better joint than an AC4000 that might be a bit baggy on that type of clay pipe (y)
