Topic - underground PVC pipe repair

goosebump - on 15 Jan 2013
Any plumbers or builders on here? Is there a good bodge solution?

Ive gone and stuck a pick axe through the (very shallow) 110mm plastic waste pipe, resulting in a hole/crack in the top, measuring about 15cm long. i was going to split and then fit a rubber coupling to repair it, but they are too short to cover the damage. Splicing a new bit of pipe and two straight couplings seems like a lot of faff (Im guessing there is little if any wriggle room for getting the push fittings in), I bet I break more pipe in teh process and it results in more potential places for leaks in future.

Is pipe repair tape worth a go? Or some kind of pipe saddle over the damage?

Whilst the pipe run is very shallow, its not in a heavy traffic area and will shortly have patio on top. Any help is appreciated!
