    Replacing the old main so this shared pipe needs to be capped off ... the guidance says it needs to loop back into the supply to reduce the risk of stagnant contamination....

    I can’t see how I can loop it back into the supply without ripping out next doors kitchen?

    We don’t know where it branches off because if next door turn off their supply under the stairs (quite a distance from this pipe) it doesn’t effect us
