    Hi, we currently have wall mounted radiator pipes which were “hidden” behind trunking - see pics. The plaster has blown so I’m planning on replacing it with plasterboard on battens. I’m using battens rather than dot and dab as I want some acoustic insulation in there too. My question is whether it’s ok to have the pipes behind the plasterboard and if so, is there a way of doing it without too much plumbing work? Might the pipes have to be temporarily disconnected at the top?

    It’s fine. I would change to 10mm speed fit at the ceiling level and drop down with that
