How deep does my pipework need to be laid?

If you or your contractor are laying your own supply pipe, it needs to be laid:

A minimum depth of 750mm of cover
A maximum depth of 1350mm of cover 

(We wouldn’t recommend any particular depth, as long as it’s laid within these depths)

Approved plumbers can be found through WaterSafe or on the Water Industry Approved Plumber Scheme WIAPS.
