    I’m looking to fit an outside tap in our back garden.

    To avoid running a pipe outside, I’m thinking about taking a feed off the mains - which currently provides water to the fridge (first pic below)
    Then running a pipe behind the skirting board or chasing the wall out (2nd pic)
    Then outside to a tap.

    Would this be ok? Or would it be against building regs / any other issues?

    Best to sleeve the pipe as it goes through the wall, and do use check valves / isolators.
