Hi hope you can help advise me of the best way to connect the soil pipe. Currently it drops from the roof down the middle of the kitchen, goes under the patio maybe 4 foot, under the patio for 2.10mtrs. Then its a drop of 1.6mtrs to the top of the manhole cover.
I had a builder suggest to cut a new pipe into the patio hang over the edge and vertical drop to the side of the manhole. I am wondering if i can go down the side of the manhole and cut into the existing pipe or come in just under the manhole lid. Looking at Tonys drawings on the site I do not see any like this.
I also wonder if i can put the soil pipe cut in straight on top of the old existing or put a elbow into the manhole and follow the flow of water?
i have added a picture of the back of the house and what i have done so far. https://photos.app.goo.gl/pq2DonAbzgbEwY3Z9
I had my friend Richard pop over he suggested a different way of cutting into the existing using a inspection chamber. This could be 3meters deep?
I wonder could i make a inspection chamber where the soil pipe goes under the patio, put a rodding eye to save me digging up 3 meters of soil under the patio?
