Any Plumbers in?
« on: May 05, 2021, 19:06:42 »
I need some tips please.....

I am bringing water to my new (outside) Toilet/Shower using 20mm Alkathene. I don't really want to take the Alkathene inside the building. What I would like to do is have a neat through the wall solution which converts from Alkathene to (either) 15mm copper or plastic push fit pipe.

Any elegant solutions?

Did you mean to post that in a 2 point font?  :old:

I'm good with adapting from Alkathene to 15mm but I was wondering if there was a neat through the wall solution  :thumb:

Re: fonts, whenever I paste a link it always defaults to tiny. I forgot to re-format it that time.

Is this because you were in such a hurry to get the concrete down you forgot to bring the water pipe up through the floor? :grin:

 :grin: That is definitely something I would do, just not this time.

When I did the last Showers it was easy because there is a Kitchen area at one end and bringing an ugly blue pipe up through the floor was okay. Because the new building is only a single toilet/shower, I was hoping for something more elegant.

Normally we run a duct in a concrete base from outside to inside at 90 degrees and then cut off at ground level inside and seal with the appropriate material, in your case expanding foam etc.? :shrug:

Also, in the past on water supply instrument installations we go from 20mm blue poly into a female threaded plasson adaptor into a male threaded pvc glue-in adaptor and route / clip the pvc pipe to close to where needed, before changing to final choice, I.e. copper or plastic?  :shrug:
