    I do quite a bit of work at a large Veterinary Clinic near me.

    I've been asked to quote to do some more work. I need to fit a basin in the post op recover kennels. I have a cold supply, and they're going to confirm whether they need hot and if they do I'll use an instantaneous heater.

    The problem I have is the waste. The only place to get rid of the waste is in one of the individual kennels. There is a soil stack and I can boss into it.

    The problem is, ideally the waste and the boss really, need to be dog proof. If a large dog goes into the kennel, it could chew the normal plastic waste. The whole kennel is tiled so I want to avoid boxing it in.

    I'm open to suggestions and tips from the good folks on here.

    Thanks in advance

    To be honest, I would just run it in plastic then box it in and tile. There's a hygiene issue with unboxed pipe i.e. dirt down the back etc
