    Hi All

    Is it ok to recess a cold water pipe into a wall (double skin concrete block) and board and plaster over it? If so should it be within trunking?

    If it is ok is there anything I should take into account?

    Many thanks
    Chris

    you need to protect it against corrosion with either insulation tape or wrap around felt lagging. if u can let it in enough putting it in a plastic mini trunking is the best option to stop cracking of the plaster & condensation marking the wall.if its in a trunk no need to tape it.
