    IMG_20200415_144109 (1).jpg Hi I have a pipe coming out of my wall in to my alleyway which I think is to allow water to run off from the boiler. I'm a little worried I might break it when going up and down the alleyway. Any idea if there is some kind of metal guard available to cover something like it. I'm not even sure what to search for.

    Thanks

    Wonder where the water is going ..galvanised electrical trunking would do, or plastic trunking if it's only pedestrian access. Or box it with plywood.
    Whichever, put some insulation round the pipe as well, save it freezing & shutting the boiler down

    Going up and down your alleyway with what, if its your car better to break a bit of plastic than denting your car, if its you just stop drinking so much

    Haha nah its mainly wheelbarrow and heavy green bin but sometimes workmen and window cleaners also. I'm just concerned if they break it it will be a right ballache sorting it out.

    Probably would be a ball ache if it was at the ground level.
