Filling chase


New Member
Hi I Chased a wall top of the ceiling and on the corner
While chasing I found out that hole drilled to pass the cables the brick around it was crumbling and loose
I then proceded to fill the area around the cables with morta to stabilise the bricks
But now am thinking this is not the best course, something to to do with cement degradation of cables??
I intend to fill the chase without capping as there is quite a few cables running 2 of which are 10mm
The wiring was done a long time before I moved in and placed in a trunking so they did not carer if they were flat
The other thing is where the cables are running I discovered a conduit running vertical to a switch below so it would make capping over that then to plaster it build mound

Any suggestions would be appreciated
