concrete floors, pipes and damp issues

Postby spantrout » Wed Jun 18, 2008 1:39 pm

Hi there, I'm a newbe so be gentle lol.

My question surrounds bringing water pipes into the house, drainage pipes exiting the house, and reducing the risk of damp.

I intend to lay a concrete floor in a new build project, how do you bring pipes into the house through foundations (lintelled and pea gravel packed)and up through floor whilst maintaining the integrity of the DPM.

Alternately if i took the pipes through the walls this would obviously be above the damp course, surely this increases the risk of damp/water penetration in the wall, or am I misguided.

Any info or possible solutions would be most welcome.
