Instead we used a product called 'Groundbreaker' developed for these very situations.
Our first job was to drill a 100mm hole through the wall using a diamond core bit. We first started using these diamond cores about twenty five years ago. You can buy a full set now in a case for what we were paying for a single bit back then. They have come right down in price but there are some poor quality ones out there that don't last. They might be OK for the DIY man but won't stand the rigors of trade use.
The back plate has a two piece insulation panel the covers the pipe. In this photo the top piece hasn't been fitted for illustration purposes.
As Water Industry Approved Plumbers we are always happy to advise on matters like this and interested in quoting for any such water main related work.
