whats the other pipe for?

 

if it was mine, id probably try and tidy up the bottom a bit, maybe cement the side and make it a bit smoother or line it with fibreglass or something, but i wouldnt try and fit a pipe over both ends and leave in inaccessable

the 'pipe' I have in mind is a 'channel' pipe, ie has no top just a sweeping channel - a bend with a large cut out - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/110mm-Drainage-87-5-Long-Radius-Channel-Bend-Plain-Ended/253042028956?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

 

other pipe is a drain from the yard above

thats why I was thinking of breaking up some space around it and then fill void around it with concrete afterwards

should work, just awkward access

 

dont forget the potentially dangerous fumes down there either if you have you head down there

fully trained and certified for work in a confined space. Just need a load of paperwork and a 5 man team standing behind me

does it really need 5 men to push you in?

at work there are typically 5 men on a confined space job. 2 in harnesses with BA gear ready to come and rescue me if necessary. 1 to do the paperwork and 2 to do the actual work.

Rev could you not re surface the concrete?  Then paint with epoxy concrete paint, as this apparently is good for a slippery surface? 

May be less work than trying to install an access bend?

Agree with sharpend. Once you start digging and banging around, you might find yourself replacing whole sections of pipe.

agree but how long would I be without a bog? I have a bloke from work who does this kind of thing coming for a look tomorrow so will see what he says

Make sure it's not shared with your neighbours to avoid a nasty surprise...

 

My mate was up a ladder fitting a waste to the soil pipe, his dad kept flushing the loo just to make sure it was the right one! :slap

all done now. All he did was hack it all out and fill the void with concrete and then 'bench' the channel in rapid set concrete. all seems to work nicely now :)

You should put it to the test.
