Radiant (Hydronic) Heating Installation – Basement Slab

Yesterday and today we spent our time furiously installing the Uponor 1/2″ hePex Plus tubing for the radiant in-floor heating in the basement.  When the concrete floor is poured the tubing will be completely encased and ready to heat the floor.  In the last few pictures you can see that I “scabbed” together a beam to suspend our distribution manifold from (an Uponor 5-loop engineered plastic manifold):

Next step is to use our compressor and get the system up to 80psi, and make sure it’s holding air and leak-free!
