Borrow a set of drain rods and see if any of them can grip it or try pushing
a probe (fence wire) to the bottom end of the pipe perhaps with a hook end
and try to pull the copper pipe up.

I got a cast iron drain pipe 3" diameter thats taking sink water
and it appears out of the wall with a 90 degree
bend and goes straight down about 3 meters
and into concrete.
Someone opened the 90 degree bend cover
and tried to unblock a blockage further down.
But they seem to have used what looks like a 15mm
copper pipe and left it stuck inside!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
An inspection camera locates it about 1 meter below the
How does one get this out?
Its cost 150 quid so far for someone to come clear it
from what I thought was a normal blockage only
to be told about this major blunder and that the job can't
be done until its taken out.
