    Sleeve and then coat the outside with rubber/tar based coating. Maybe even get away with bed liner

    Your idea will work, but it’s others have mentioned their are products available to do exactly what you’re trying to achieve.

    Rather than dig it up, buy a sock liner, resin and re-line the pipe. They have professional systems intended for long runs of pipe, but for what you’re talking about a fairly small investment and the line will be fixed for years.

    Here is one site that shows how it’s done.

    They did that on the storm drains here and suddenly it all worked right again.

    We do it on storm water lines here and it works great. For this size, you could do it yourself and that thing would be there longer than the people using the pond.

    They have some socks that you coat with resin, pull through the line and then pressurize with an air compressor and it seals everything from the inside and looks just like green PVC inside.

    What I saw the sort of pushed it into the hole then pressure turned the "hose" inside out pushing it into the pipe as it went. The turning it inside out activated the resin and hardener.
    I never asked how they go thru and cut holes or how they end a job. I suppose they measure and cut it off at a mark.

    Thanks for the ideas, I'll circle back later and let you know how things are going. Kinda tied up at the moment getting fall crops in the ground.

    Yeah we did an impact analysis and decided to do a survey. When the survey returns we'll do a economic study then vote on a plan. It should only take until july 2023 at the soonest. Plz be patient.
