    Afternoon,
    First post here so please go easy..
    I'm fitting a kithen (DIYer) and wondering if it is ok to clip 15mm copper pipe to the hardboard backing under the kitchen sink. I'd like to bring the pipes up through the bottom of the unit and have a nice layout on the backing board to serve H+C taps and the dishwasher.
    The backing board seems a bit flimsy but what other options are there?
    Cheers.

    Yes but it will need some bracing at the back of the clips

    Cheers - do you mean attach some ply behind the backer? Or a baton across where I want to run some clips?
    There is space as there's a 70mm service void.

    Is there an alternative?
    I suppose what I'm asking is what is the conventional way of doing it?
    I've seem people clip to the wall behind and cut out a 'window' to connect the flexi's etc.

    Half the time they don't clip them

    Depends on where the pipes are I normally clip behind the unit to give maximum space inside the units

    I think im overhtinking this. Reckon I'll come through the backing, right turn, connect the valves then attach the flexi's directly. Stealth..

    Don't forget some ISO valves if you have space

    Thanks.
    Very thankful you posted this as the kitchen is fed from above so I'll need drain offs. Had slipped my mind.
    Whats that little oval bit? Behind the panel?

    looks like the main incoming stop cock and drain off (plus equipotential bonding)
