    Anyone know of a wrap around pipe repair for 110mm? Just cut into a soil pipe while cutting out a boxing.

    Don't really want to have to cut a coupler and slip coupler in.

    It's a whole unit. Kind of looking for a sleeve that is one length that wraps around and tightens. Without having to cut all the way through the pipe and move it.

    Split/cut the fernco coupling length ways, if necessary bond it to the soil stack with some PU adhesive as well as the jubilee clips, keep the split round the back no one will notice.

    I have seen these for larger pipes but not 110.

    I was actually thinking of cutting a piece of 110 and then slicing this in half length ways and just sticking this with some solvent weld and cable ties until it welds

    I would just cut and fit a slip coupler. I wouldn’t want a call back in 2 weeks time

    Gap filler glue?
    How big is the cut

    Fine but I don't think solvent weld will stick PE, PU Gorilla glue will do it or any PU ady for that matter, just remember to wet the surface if you use it as it's water activated.

    Flexible Connector 112 - 112mm

    Mind you if its just a saw cut, superglue works fine on PE, get one of those mitre bond kits. Fill the gap and spray it and it sets like concrete or just use an epoxy.

    Thanks for all the replies gents.

    The tap is about 1mm wide by about 1 1/2 inches long. Put some plumbers good in there for temp measure and it is holding up fine but want a better fix

    As suggested previously Araldite epoxy or equivalent mate, thought you'd bust a large hole in it.
