June 10, Radiant Heating tubes complete!

Worked through the week, dealing with the rain,  put the pex tubing in place for the 7 radiant heating loops planned for the house and garage/workshop.   The plumbing folks predicted they would have the last roll of tubing on Friday, but no go.   It was delivered on Monday.   All but the last big loop were finished by Sunday night.    Had rain on Sunday night, so I was shopvacing the water off the tarpaulins before I could peel them back and do the last loop of tubing Monday afternoon.   Tuesday was tying up the loose ends, placing the  ends of the loops in a neat array for connection to the heating manifolds, and putting form lumber over the cutouts where the slab will be poured in the various doors extending to the edge of the foundation.   Tuesday morning the cement finisher dropped by to tell me we are scheduled to pour on Friday morning, so went down immediately to alert the plumbing contractor.   Today, Wednesday the boys came round to put in the splices in the pex sections, connect the manifolds  and pressure test the whole assembly.  All done by 5PM and will  check back in the morning to confirm there are no leaks in the system.  Pictures below of the fiinished product.
