You will need a plastic coated copper pipe and it should be a mimimum of 50mm from the wall,insulation should shield the copper tube to allow for expansion,
just check the building regulations ok.
If you need any other infomation just ask.

yes, cover it with "gaffer" tape or "denso" tape and it will be fine, regards Terry.
