    I must admit it's not an exam quality piece of pipework, however, I've seen far worse.
    However, you must never chase heating pipes into the wall like that - big problems!!
    For a start the bricks and plaster will draw the heat out of the pipes and warm up the wall lovely!!.
    The plaster will also crack and soon fall off.
    So for me the pipework is a pass - but it fails by being chased into the wall which in turn makes it a dogrough job.
    Servotech,
