pipes under floor and renovating old terraced cottage

Postby legepe » Sat Mar 03, 2018 8:53 am

Hi all,
Im in the process of renovating an old terraced house which had the original old floating wooden floor.
I have removed it and got hardcore down ready for sand and insulation then final concrete.
I have had gas fitter install all pipework on the top of the hardcore..
Is this ok.. or should the pipes have been run somewhere else.. all pipes are insulated, and he tested them with air pressure... I am just a little concerned that the pipes should not have been run under insulation and a concrete floor.. how can a leak be detected in the future?
