    I have a run of cabinets in my galley kitchen of about 4.5m. The hot cold feed need to be replumbed and will run behind these units.

    Would you rather have copper or my suggestion to the plumber was a single run of plastic rather than having elbows and couplers I can’t get to without ripping out the kitchen.


    Thoughts?

    Ideally ....
    soldered copper would be proper (my choice)
    but a single run of plastic can sometimes be fantastic (If access is difficult)

    Lol

    Doesn’t every new built have mostly plastic pipe these days?

    I prefer to see copper tbh but this just makes more sense to have a continuous run from entry to sink?

    No access issues before fitting but access after would be a nightmare
