Installing a hydronic radiant floor system in a slab-on-grade floor
Here is our DIY video of how to lay down tubing for our radiant floor in the Edelweiss House. We have a 10 zone system, allowing floor temperatures in each room to be controlled independently. HePex tubing was provided by Uponor, who also use building plans to give customers a zone plan to follow making the install quick and easy, also ensuring the right length of run for each zone to ensure balanced heat throughout the house.
