Was he not responsible for sleeving it in the first place ?Yes, understand there are. My GasSafe mate on a site we were both on went ballistic and refused to certify a pipe that that been concreted in without protection, because of the corrosion risk. Owner refused to correct so he walked off the job, was'nt about to risk his GasSafe ticket. He might be a bit particular but unlike some installers he is well up on the technical/practical stuff.
Not a chance of the plumber doing it "decorator will get that"..Should have wrapped them in Denso tape, sticky as f**k but works, should have been done by plumber though
The Denso tape stays on, it’s to stop the sand and cement getting to the copper. If the pipes are exposed give them a good clean after the slurry coat which you should do any wayNot a chance of the plumber doing it "decorator will get that"..
I respect the tape options suggested by You and Carl but it can be a real pain to get off afterwards. The plastic strip also works where pipes are already painted and is a piece of p~ss to get off, and easy to staple tight onto the pipe if you don't want to pull it tight while laying on or finishing.
