How to Remove Concrete and Breezy Block From Pipe

Postby Toby73 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 7:53 pm

We are in a rural location and have recently discovered a large run off pipe has been blocked by a nasty neighbour who manages to get retrospective planning permission for everything he does. We have flooded and this run off pipe would have taken a lot of the water away.

The pipe is at least 10inch diameter, and about 1 foot in is a cemented breeze block that should discharge into a dyke. For various reasons we need to remove this as quietly as possible and allow the flow of water to happen. It's a long story but we need to do this on the quiet as we are on very poor terms with neighbour! Any tools or advice be great thank you.

Hi Toby73,
Use a battery powered drill with long masonry bit but not on hammer action, run this between the pipe and the block and work your way round.
