I have got a refurb to rewire, the incoming water supply is in plastic pipe as is all pipework
in the premises run in walls and underfloor.Copper is only used to connect to radiators and taps
where they exit the wall or come up from floor boards.

I can therefore omit the main bonding as long as disconnection time is met!

Is there anything else i need to take into consideration and what about supplementary bonding in this situation????

Thanks for any assistance you give!!!!!!!

It doesn't hurt to run a bonding cable to the stop cock and coil it, that way when Mickey Mouse and his friends eat through the plastic, and its been replaced with copper, the bonding cable is sitting there waiting!
In fact locally the plumbers tend to put in about a foot of copper after the stop cock so it can be bonded. That sounded a bit like a compliment to a water devil so I'll back it up with, they've probably dreamt up a regulation about it like they dream up all the others!
