Heatway radiant tubing

I had two heating zones in my home done with the Heatway radiant floor tube system. This construction was done in the fall of 1994. I noticed two years ago that neither zone was producing heat. In these past two years I had the circulaing pumps and the mixing valves replaced. I just recently learned from the orginal plumber that the tubes are blocked up and the two zones need to be completely replaced.

During my research on the computer, I learned that there was a lawsuit against Heatway and Goodyear relating to this same problem. Does anyone have any information, that you can share with me regarding my next step in trying to get some satisfaction. I heard that Heatway went into bankruptcy and then the company was sold to Watts Radiant Company.

I would really appreciate any help that I can receive.
Thank you for your efforts. Greg

Heatway Radiant Tubing Question

Hi Gary, not sure if you got any replies to this but I have a similar question and I am hoping someone can help me.

I have Entran radiant tubing which was installed in 1996. My heating service people flushed the heat system and told me I had sludge, brown sludge in the system. They told me it was from the tubing, potentially.

Can you flush the system, including the tubes, and then maybe but in an inhibitor? How can you combat this?
