I've seen a lot worse.
Are you concreting over the entire length of the pipe or just passing it through footings?

hi thanks for your reply,

I’m currently doing the footings for a porch and bay window at the front of my house which are going to be flush with each other.

Most of the soil pipe will be under the floor area of the bay window however there are two areas that the soil pipe is exposed across the width of the Footings. This is the area im
More concerned about as i
Don’t want to crush the pipe with concrete.

I’m a plumber by trade so happy with doing the pipe work, currently it’s clay pipe ( old) so I intend to rip that out and replace with pvc as I don’t want to have to dig up my bay window floor in a years time.

Even though im a plumber and deal
With soil pipe my experience doesn’t really cover foundations over pipes and happy to admit it. I do however come across lots of jobs were replacing pipes is a pain in the backside due to no space around the pipe to thread new piping.

I just don’t know enough about laying pipes through foundations!

Many thanks
Jake

Forgive my ignorance… why will it need moving? There’s loads of extensions with it under… I don’t want to come across rude as it isn’t my intention I’m just trying to figure why? Also I don’t think I can move it as the garden slopes so that will effect the fall if moved elsewhere

Maybe do a drawing so we can see what you want to do. You cant have a drain pipe inside the foundation running along with it. Crossing the foundation is fine...
At the end of the day if its your private drain pipe and building control are not involved you can do whatever you like...

Hi
Thanks for your reply , it’s crossing the foundation not running along the foundation … hopefully pic will help . You’ll see the drain in the footings.

The porch is getting extended to the left and the window is being brought forward
Thanks Jake

Normally use a 100mm precast concrete lintel. You can sit it on blocks or straight on to the footings. Depends what you need really...
