  • Outdoor Wood Furnace?

    When running your underground lines, do you want them to have contact with each other or separated? Why?

    Thanks.

        I use this stuff for them.

        No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          Thanks.

            That pipe comes ready to burry. You could pull that through a PVC Chase. Making it in PVC and Pouring expanding foam would work if you could keep them centered in the pipe or just use 1" insulation on the supply and returns in the PVC chase. I would keep them together.

              JC keep them separated because they expand like crazy when heated. Leave yourself some 2 to 3 foot diameter expansion loops inside the home. 150 foot run will expand about least 21" at 130 degree delta T. Linear expantion rate is 1.1" for each 10 degrees per 100' Make sure its at least 1" and keep it as straight as possible. The stuff above is great because it is seperated with the insulation. Go through the slab at the boiler straight through the foundation. NO 90's. If you use Ecoflex like above the expantion is minimal, it is ready to bury.
