Plastering up a shower

Hi guys,
Ive finally installed my thermostatic shower, and im pretty sure its stopped leaking, but now i need to plaster (then tile) over it., Wh it did leak and the breezeblocks got soaked the paint started peeling off the adjoining toilet wall (as youd expect), is there out there any plaster/waterproof sealent mixture milarky that will give me peace of mind when it comes to plastering over the pipes and channels ive made for them. The only other way would be to plyboard it and then tile, but this would probably be even more hassle than just filling it all in
Any ideas Appreciated as the missus has started
(thats plaster advice...not a hitman for the missus !)

You just have to ensure that all the pipework joints are leak free in the first place before you plaster. You could smear some silicone sealant over the pipe joints as a precautionary measure but it's not considered professional!
I was once installing a heating system and when I started it up for the first time some leaks started appearing. As I moved pipes to resolve the leaks more leaks developed. I was puzzled as I never had this problem ever before. Used a new batch (and brand) of flux and never had any trouble again.

In addition to the other good advice, why are you using plaster? If you are going to tile over it, you are probably better off with sand and cement. This is a good base for tiles, and doesn't suffer as much as plaster if it gets damp.
