        I am trying to find the rules governing plumbing copper pipe under or in a concrete slab. The site is a site, mine. I suspect that all I have to do is seperate the copper pipe from the concrete with some sort of flexiable insulation such as foam but I am not sure.Ernie Bertram

          i would recommend to use type B pre-lagged copper wrapped in foam (material that you use on slab waste).

              :Copper pipe located under ground or in concrete should be concealed in plastic poly tubing to prevent acids in the ground and salts in the concrete from corroding the copper pipe. If the pipe is just passing through the concrete, then a ridged sleeve should be placed in the formwork to allow the pipe to have movement for expansion or contraction. Contact your local plumbing inspector for more info and good luck.
