    Hi,
    Upon digging the grass, we found out the pipe is broken(photo attached)

    This is the first time I am trying to fix a pipe.
    Notes:

    The pipe on the wall is slightly away from the house wall.

    There is a elbow which had connected the two pipe together. I am going to remove the elbow by slightly digging the ground.

    What would be the best way to fix this? I am not sure about the sizing of the avaialble pipes and the adapters hence need your kind help

    If you could tell me what parts i need with screwfix reference. It would be great as I'm not familiar with wordings and terms.

    Thank you

    You will need:

    Two of these: http://www.screwfix.com/p/flexible-adaptor/19914 , one of these: http://www.screwfix.com/p/double-socket-bend-87-5/12960 , and some pipe, e.g. http://www.screwfix.com/p/underground-drainage-pipe-3m/25648

    An angle grinder with a stone disc and a metal disc.

    Cut back the clay pipe in the ground using stone disc in angle grinder. Chamfer the cut edge at 45deg, fit a rubber coupler. Determine position of the bend under the stack pipe, measure and cut a piece of plastic pipe to go between the 2 points. Chamfer cut end of plastic before attempting to fit bend or coupling.

    Cut Cast Iron pipe to suit, measure gap and cut/fit plastic to suit, using other rubber coupling to join. Surround underground pipework with peagravel to protect pipe, advise a spot of concrete to retain bend in set position.

    That`s a very tight bend for a soil pipe :confused: is it just a vent stack ?
