tracing heating pipe

Hey all,

I'm trying to trace out all the heating pipe paths in my house. Foundation is on a "slab". One zone is in the slab, 11 pieces of baseboard, but there are 4 supply pipes and returns. Upstairs is a second zone, 3 supply and returns. Upstairs is a bit easier, since there are only the three baseboards to match the supply/returns. The slab located ones are what I need help tracing. Any help/ideas certainly are appreciated.

tracing heating pipe

Thanks beenthere, I will try that. Walking where one may feel heat transfer, I found a couple paths..Their returns may prove to be more difficult to find.

And by the way, john_opwin....WHAT?????
