Pipe cover?


I am not even sure what the name of this would be but here it goes. Coming out of the wall going to the toilet is the copper fitting which a flex tube is connected to. My question is about the copper pipe coming out of the wall. The hole around it is much bigger than the actually circumference than the pipe itself. That is because the plumber put a plug on the end while the remodel is going on. Is there any type of cover other than just mud that a person can get to be decorative and cover the hole? Thanks.

All the box stores sell them---Menards has a nice plastic one with a slit that allows you to twist it to install----Very neat ---Mike------

Pipe cover?


Went to our hardware store today and they had them but not for my size. The pipe coming out of the wall to the toilet is a 1/2". They had for 1/2" pipe or 3/4" copper but not 1/2" copper. I live 40 miles from Home Depot, so I am not going to drive there just to get one. I guess I need to order one online but need to find one that fits my 1/2" copper. Thanks.

So I guess your next step is to call around and find someone locally who does.

1/2" copper needs a 5/8" hole.
