    The word "interTwined" is incorrect.  Intertwined with what?  The pipe would have to be twisted along with something else to be intertwined.  The word "disentangle" is also used to indicate the pipe is tangled with something else. Disentangle it from what?  Without knowing what that *something else* is, correcting your sentence is impossible.

    I would say INTWINED instead of INTERTWINED

    I would say UNTANGLE instead of DISENTANGLE

    and I'd drop the semi-colon and just put AND.

    The water pipe badly intwined and I cannot untangle it.

    perhaps you should say HOSE. Pipes do not tangle up / intertwine. {Then be more pro-active to shorten the sentence. "I cannot untangle my water hose."}

    Grammatically it is correct.

    SENSIBLY it is difficult to understand. (Normally a water pipe is not "intertwined".) I'm not sure what you mean to say, and so I don't know how to write it properly.

    Please describe the situation in detail.

      Normally a water pipe is (at least somewhat) rigid and does not effortlessly become "entangled" with things. Do you mean a water HOSE? If so, it's very odd that someone would be unable to disentangle a hose (unless they were disabled).
