Lathe to fix a large gap in a block wall


After cutting in new plumbing into my block wall, I've got a good size gap (several inches square) left from my over zealous cutting of the block. Can I just put some lathe over it with stucco since it's going to be behind drywall?

I should have loaded the photo originally. Sorry. This will be behind drywall once completed.

Reg PVC outside. Hmmm I think you made a mess. I would say fill in with mix but it might crack the piping when it drys. Or crack do to low temps. Hmmmmm

This is all inside a home in FL. No freezing here.

I don't know if its available where you live. but I would just buy some of that spray foam insulation that wont shrink or expand from tempeture and fill behind the pipes try not to get too much in front in case you ever get a leak and have to fix the pipes.
Since its behind drywall it will keep the pipe from moving and act as insulation from the concrete blocks.

Just a thought hope it helps.

Just cover it up with drywall it doesn't require filling.

In fact if that is an outside wall I think I would leave an opening there anyway just so as to benefit from the warmth of the inside of the house.

I agree with Bud. just leave it as is. but, leave an access panel in case of leaks.

as always, just my thoughts.

good luck

Exactly what I was thinking. It is going to be covered with drywall. Just leave it. How would you fit one these in there anyway.
