I have a beam and block floor in a new build and will be laying 75mm of insulation then a 65/75mm sharp sand/cement screed. I will be laying plastic central heating pipes in the screed but there will be 'T' junctions at every radiator valve which I do not want embedding in screed for obvious reasons. I have spoken to the building inspector and he is happy for me to shutter off under each radiator and leave each joint accessible under a small section of screwed down floorboard. The rooms will be a mixture of tile and carpet but is there a better way of covering the 'T' junctions?
plastic pipesdote rubbish and are meant for lazy people that cant be bothered to learn a trade also the risk involved is pointless if for any reason your boiler decides to overheat do you think that plastic rubbish will hold up to plus 82deg temperatures-no it wont so be warned-god i hate that stuff and the people that useit :evil:
