    Hi all,

    Have a plumber coming in a couple days to do the plumbing for our new bathroom, we’ve started to remove the tiles / plasterboard in preparation- the walls are all being reboarded later on too.

    One possible problem is where the shower is going is actually a dot and dab wall and not a stud as we thought - is it still possible to bury the pipes into the wall as planned before but I guess with some slight cutting out for the shower outlet pipe?

    Thanks

    Marc
