Locating A Buried PVC Pipe

Question: My kids have broken off a pvc pipe that was connected to the house via the water well. Now the house is on city water, but it was connected to the well. I want to reroute the pipe underground but from the city connection to the house is pvc we think. I had one plumber out. He could not locate it. I welcome any ideas contact me. The pipe was broken below the concrete all I could do is plug it up. The pipe is the 7/10 inside diameter.

Answer: If you can fish a 14 or 12 gauge wire into the pipe, a buried cable locating company will be able to track the position of the wire. To try, attach it to the end of a fish tape and see how far you can feed it in.
