I have checked the manhole and got some one with camera to check the pipe but they told me it is blocked by cement so is there any possibility to open a blocked pipe

"Morning, you can try a Jet the Run and remove the blockage, if unsuccessful you will have to dig out the section and replace the pipework."

"Dig down and replace the blocked section, then jet the system and you'll be good to go."

"Good afternoon.
The problem you describe would most likely require excavation drainage works. You would be best contacting a large drainage company or building contractor. Regards BPS"

"If your willing to dig the blocked part and renew and get it jetted then should be fine"

"First I would try to jet through to see if you can push the blockage through,
If this does not clear your blockage then the only option would be to use the report that you should of received from who ever used a camera to diagnose the blockage you have,
Then you will have to dig down to the section where the blockage is and either try to clear the issue once opened and having better access if not you will have to renew the blocked section.
Then reinstate the dig out back to how it was."

"Hi this is possibly a redundant pipe that was capped off ! Hence the cement in the pipe ! Best option would be to trace the pipe , dig down and remove cement and add new pipework as required!"

"Yes but until you look at it you cannot tell I could need excavating around the pipe and replacing"

"Hi there

Yes you can re open the pipework and cut the concrete out if not too much. If not it could be dug down onto and then opened back up by then..

You should get a full and proper CCTV report down with a full set of recommendations.

If I was attending I would look for solutions whilst I was there and the recommend and quote for a fix as additional works."
