    Hi

    I have recently found an exposed waste pipe underneath my conservatory floor after we had a blockage and water seeped up. Having peeled the Lino back by what would have been the old external wall of the house there is a pipe that leads down to the waste pipe where the water from the kitchen runs out under the conservatory into the main drain in the garden . The pipe under the Lino is not sealed off and just had a shody piece of board sitting on top of it , no doubt so the previous occupier could lay the Lino . Have a couple of questions

    1. should the pipe be sealed off .. if so how
    2. I need to lay néw flooring in the conservatory ... if the pipe can’t or shouldn’t be sealed off I take it an inspection cover should be fitted so it can be lifted up rather than flooring over the top of it ... if there is a blockage in the main drain again it will no doubt back up and flood the conservatory again

    any advice would be great.. have attached some pics
