is acceptable by british standards.

if not the house is still under a 2 years full warranty by the developer so i can get ii fixed, and i would like to understand what should i expect as a proper job.

Thanks you very much in advance for any advice on this matter.

Simply Build It

I'm assuming this is a gas pipe as it's in the gas and gas fitting forum.

It's safe, the pipework has been bent by hand (by the looks of it) and kinked. I'd ask for it to be changed as it is unsightly and this is now a weak point in the copper.

Thanks htg, sorry i should have mention it, yes it is a gas pipe.

I do agree with you about the weak point, i was wondering if i can ook up any building regulation so i can make more of a point and argue my case?
