I cant believe how much solder he's wasted... do you know how much it costs? 😱

Here's a little job I did with @MunchMyStump yesterday 😉

The reason there's such a big hole on the outside of the wall is that he drilled through a bit that was plugged with mortar as it had been previously drilled and plugged. The whole bit of mortar fell out, but its been plugged back up now and looks quite tidy. Works with no leak.

Did he wrap the pipe with plastic tape before pointing around it?
If not it might be an idea to do it again as the salts in the sand and brickwork will eat into the copper pipe and cause it to leak, even more so if he's used the cheaper copper pipe from the DIY sheds

I dunno I didn't watch him do it, he didn't need my help in the end. :LOL: I'll ask him.
