Replace and re-direct (if required) cast-iron soil pipe with plastic...
Overflowing drain . The pipe coming from the kitchen sink to the drain outside is not secured properly. This causes food waste, which manages to escape down the pipe, to block the drain cover, causing it to overflow. Looking for pipe to be fitted directly into the drain - if this is possible?
I need to have an approximate quote on repair work in my bathroom in NP11 6HB (Risca). This is how my plumber (who does not specialise in drainage) describes it:
"At the back of the toilet and basin there is a partition wall that has been tiled with access at the top. Inside there is the the soil pipe and also waste pipes for shower and basin.
The problem explained after careful inspection is that there is an unused strap on boss with an outlet that had an unused push fit pipe with an open ended elbow at the end that should have been capped off but has been gathering waste from the upstairs flat and overflowing on the open ended elbow. This unused pipe needs to be removed and the existing boss strap capped off as it is not needed and existing foul water cleaned up.
This should be a simple fix!"
I realise a quote can only be approximate without seeing the job, but I need a rough idea of the cost involved (and timeframe, please) before going ahead.

have had damp in back room of house. floorboards and joists renewed. thought damp coming via porous step under patio doors so step renewed and aco drainage put in but when getting to drain away, plastic part removed and the old p trap sump [ house circa 1890] was seen to have multiple cracks and a piece broken at the bottom. have tried a repair by using a rich comp mix and mulitple coatings of "stop leak" but think it is still leaking. main problem is that it is under a wall. can it be lined or repaired without digging up.

I'm not sure
We can't see where the vertical pipe is broken as it is in the wall between the ground floor/ patio and the lower ground floor where the garden is. We removed a stone at the bottom of the house/ lower ground floor and could see the pipe and sewage running alongside it
Recently installed kitchen sink shared drain with shower. Drain overflowing outside in garden, probably blocked
