    Hi
    After a bit of advise, if anyone can help please. Just had a plumber put some copper pipes in. Some for water and some for gas. The pipes are going behind plaster boards, which will be fixed in place with dot and dab. He has taped the pipes with duct tape to protect the pipes, but the tape doesn't completely cover the pipes in places. In some areas it is damaged, which has exposed the copper. Not sure how concerned I should be. Was especially concerned with the gas pipe. This has exposed copper and it has been clamped to the wall with straps causing it to bend in places as the wall is not even.
    What are peoples thoughts on this.
    Thanks

    To protect it from what?

    Copper doesn't need duct tape!

    What about the plasterboard adhesive eating into the copper?

    Does bonding plaster eat into copper pipes?
