    Re doing my bathroom and I have a triton power shower. Currently its installed with plastic speed fit pipes and the power cable running down a short length (12 " or so) of plastic trunking.

    It looks naff so I want to chase the pipes and cable into the wall but I'm not sure if I can have the pipes in an external wall (breeze block, cavity, brick).

    If I can do it how deep do i need to chase it and would I be better swapping the platic for copper?

    The connections to the shower pump come in through the top of the unit and are the push in type so I'm not even too sure if these can be changed to allow the pipe to come in from the rear, any ideas?
