yes, yes, do what Nick said...
hire a mini digger.

We did, and replaced pipe that our arse of a neighbour, (who built the house & refused to tell us where the original pipe lay)......
easy - Kieran worked the mini digger and John laid the pipe....

3 years later - no problems.

Less than a hundred quid? Where do you get your mini digger and pipe from?

Mole ploughs are great for ble pipe, until you graze a rock. Any split could leak, you'd never find it, and if you're on a metered supply....




Use a pipelayer & not just a pipe dragging mole plow then that wont be a problem.

You've got to be the unluckiest person in the world to hit the rock in the fens.
