Hi, I have a tap just inside the garage. I would like to move this to the other side of the wall. I am happy to drill a hole through, can I do this without soldering etc. As simple as poss. would be best. thanks.

Assuming all joints will be accessible then compression fittings can be used.

Would advice that you fit an isolation valve on the warm side, as external taps tend to freeze, my original by the builder on the outside of the kitchen has blown off once due freezing and we now isolate from inside each winter.

By using a plastic joint or isolating valve on the inside, you will electrically isolate the outside tap as it is outside the equipotential zone.

That's what I was taught any way.

A sparkie will be able to say for sure.
