    Hi

    I want to buy a vanity unit with sink that is wall mounted, the wall i will mount it on is brick. The design means I need to recess the pipes into the wall. Is that a difficult job and are there any issues I should watch out for.

    Regards
    John B

    Cut a chase in to the wall ( don't go crazy) run your pipes in the wall.

    Cap them and then test for leaks, if all okay, wrap with Denso tape and fill in with cement if on external wall.

    Keep joints in the wall to a minimum

    Wear gloves for applying tape

    Use soldered connections only - Don't use compression fittings buried. You don't have to use denso tape, but wrapping tape on the prefabricated pipe section that you want to bury is a good idea.
