    I managed to damage the outside of an underfloor heating pipe whilst chiseling the screed today. Im confident it wont leak (right away) but its certainly weakened. I have seen electricians use what I guess is some sort of resin when making joints that will be buried underground and wondered if there was a product that I could simply pour into the hole in the concrete where the damaged pipe is. This would obviously save me chopping out even more of the floor to get a joint in.
    Anybody got any ideas?

    May I ask what are you chiseling for / removing the whole floor ?

    I was enlarging a hole to fit a floor trap for a shower and I came across a buried pipe.

    Do you know the pipes manufacturer and it would need a joint

    Also normally there is any underfloor allowed under bathroom equipment

    It will depend on the manufacturer of the pipe. If it was a multilayered pipe the outer is for strength. If this is damaged the pipe could burst under pressure.
    Post a picture and hopefully we could inform you better.

    Remove the damaged section of pipe and repair with a couplin or couplins
