Plumbing services supply to island unit


Postby Edpaterson » Mon Feb 28, 2011 11:03 am

Hi

I am in the process of planning a kitchen extension and would like to install an island unit which contains the sink and a dishwasher. If the floor is concrete what is the best way to get services (water, waste and electricity) across to the island. Do I need to bury a plastic service pipe through which everything can run? I suspect a similar problem will arise with piping to the central heating radiators.

As you will have guessed I have little or no experience of dealing with concrete floors. The rest of the house has a suspended wooden floor with services running under it. Should I do the same in the extension?

Thanks

yes you will need to run all services prior to concreting. waste pipe can just go in as it is no need for sheathing etc - JUST MAKE SURE that you have sufficient fall in the correct direction prior to pouring concrete - you won't be able to put it right afterwards.

copper pipes will have to be wrapped in denso tape and electrial wires will have to be in conduit.
