    I am creating a utility & cloakroom off my dining room. The flooring in my dining room has to come up (parquet) and I want to bury two 15mm JG supply pipes to carry hot and cold to the cloakroom, then a cold through to the utility room area. The other end of the supply pipes will be chased into floor next to rising main and hot water (will need to be T'd in). I have not yet had a soil stack installed for the toilet this needs to be done.

    My question is where abouts should I bring the supply pipe up? should I do it next to the toilet or sink? What's the norm I guess is what I am asking.

    I have JG conduit to run the plastic pipework through, no joins will be buried in the screed.

    Whichever you think will look neater generally.

    OK I guess it will need to be boxed in either way or could run behind skirting. Just trying to think of where to pop them up. Guess it doesn't overly matter.
     

  5. I would suggest running the hot water supply in John Guest 10mm pipe. You will find by doing so that you will get hot quicker to the sink and use less water doing so hence saving money and water. It's the next best thing to having a secondary return.

    Good idea Bodd and thanks for suggesting but I have all the pipework and conduit for 15mm pipe, plus fittings! seems a waste to not use them now.

    BTW what is the standard depth to bury supply pipework in conduit in concrete?
