Among other problems with my sewerline, I've got a hole in the pipe just on the outside of my foundation. This is also where roots are entering my pipe. It's 4" cast Iron.
The concrete slab is all but gone in the corner where the pipe exits the house.

I'm thinking that the wastewater is seeping into the ground from the hole in the pipe. It's always wet in the corner and after washing clothes or long showers it smells kind of bad in that area, but there isn't any overflowing from the drain.
Do you think it's possible to bust out a couple concrete blocks and part of the footer to expose the pipe and replace the section where there is a hole?
It's 5- 6feet down and a new (only 1.5 years old) sidewalk is right above this outside.
