    I am contemplating fitting wall mounted taps with the pipework concealed in the wall. The walls in my bathroom are brick and plaster. How easy is it to fit these types of taps in a brick wall, or are wall mounted taps only suitable for plasterboard walls.
    Also are there different types of wall monted taps for different wall construction?

    Thanks

    Build a false wall first to house the pipes and taps. I used CLS timber. Only needs to be a few inches thick.

    wall mounted taps are suitable for any type of wall.

    you can either build a faulse wall.
    or channel the wall with a wall chaser or sds drill/channelling chisel.

    take no time at all to chisels two channels 30mm deep.

    Do all the tap bits and pieces come in a box , a bit like a wall electrical socket or are the connections bare and get plastered back in.
    Also are there brackets to strengthen the installation?
    Thanks

    Channeling is easier than building a false wall
