Can someone answer this please.
We are in the middle of having a bathroom update which includes a move in
position of the bath and basin. Where the bath is now, the old supply pipes
for the basin have been utilised. The plumber has fastened on what appear to
be metal-cased flexible tube-piping to the original copper pipes, which then
fasten onto the taps on the bath.
We have had an alternate plumber here today to do some work on a radiator
and he expressed an interest in finishing the job off after i told him how
shoddy and slack the original plumber is being. (not turning up, no phone
He looked at the plumbing in of the bath and said that its' okay to use this
flexi tubing stuff, but each supply pipe should have an isolation valve so
we can isolate the supply to the bath completely. He said that this is part
of the regs for plumbing in of a bath. Is this correct or is this new
plumber just trying to make me more peed off at the original one and
increase his chances of being asked to finish the job?
