i'm fitting a new kitchen and there are two 15mm copper pipes that run up the wall so i would like to chase them into the wall, i was thinking off wrapping the pipes with denso anti corrosion tape and then plastering over them, but a friend of mine suggested it might be better to use push fit poly pipe but i'm not sure i like the idea of plastic push fit pipes , any idea which way would be best.

Either is OK, but make sure that:

1. The copper would need wrapping against corrosion as you plan. Any fittings should be soldered.
2. The plastic pipe would not need anti-corrosion wrapping. However, don't have any fittings buried, just a plain run of pipe. If either pipe is for central heating make sure you use barrier pipe (or just use it anyway).
3. Either would need some soft wrapping / air gap as well to allow for expansion and contraction, both hot and cold. Otherwise there is s risk of the plaster cracking off.

thanks, i think i'm going to try and cover the existing copper pipes ,i know push fit pipes are ok but i really don't like them we also have really high water pressure and i'm worried they might come apart.
