Hi all you Gasmen/fitters.
Simple question! I hope!
Just about to purchase property been around it had a good look. I noticed that the gas supply connecting to the boiler on the external wall. Has been painted looks like whitewash. But this is starting to peel away and expose the copper pipe, remember this is on the outside wall! My current property's gas supply pipe looks to be well protected with a black type of bitumen paint, sort of stuff?
The question is should this copper pipe on new purchase be protected by anything.
Regards and thanks for any advise.
