Question

How-to hydronic tubing rough-in


I'm running the PEX through the walls for hydronic baseboards, and for some reason I'm having a brain cramp on how to set up the connections so that I can hook up the baseboard later on. The PEX comes up through the wall cavity between the studs to the second floor, and I have the ends hanging out into the bedroom. Now what? I know it's simple, but I can't seem to picture the best way to secure these so I can insulate and close up the wall. But I want to be smart about the way I do it so that I don't cause myself more problems later when I get ready to mount the fin tube unit and secure it to the wall. Based on experience, what's the best way to do this?

Not sure what your question is?

Are you asking how to connect to the fin tubes?

Or how to secure to the wall?

Sorry for the confusion. I have the PEX to Copper fittings so I don't have a problem sweating those and connecting to the fin tube. My question is how do I secure the PEX tubing BEFORE I put up drywall?

It seems like they should be attached with some kind of bracket. But I'm not exactly sure what this would look like and I'm having a hard time picturing it.
