    Put some sort of cover over it and then cover that with a layer of mortar at least 20mm thick, ideally with some builders fibre glass strands in the mortar mix. It'll then be stronger than the original pipe.

    What are you going to do about your pond assuming that you've now got a pipe in it that you weren't planning on having? Is there any way you can use the pipe as an overflow for the pond - insert a tee into the broken pipe pointing vertically and fix the height/depth of the pond with a pipe of the correct length? Much will depend on where the pipe comes from, goes to and what it carries of course.
     
  5. That is a superb idea!!! I’ve got all these ideas now. I’ve just brought two flexiseal adaptors , I’ll get a T joint now and some flexible tube and make an overflow
     
  6. I did think something along those lines. But because it’s under my pond which is roughly 1500 gallons it wouldn’t be strong enough.
