How to attach a framed wall to radiant heated floor?


I'm planning to finish the basement. How do I attach the base of the wall to the concrete floor? Could I just use Liquid Nails?

PL premium for concrete is my choice. Unless you know exactly where the lines are do not use any nails/screws or such.

Ramset nailer,or tap con screws, and some construction glue. if you use glue correctly you can get by with less floor fasteners but you still need fasteners in case the glue ever fails from moisture or what not...

I wouldn't suggest that with any form of radiant floor (with hot water lines or electrical heat).

Just my curious mind inquiring, are the radiant heats pipes UNDER the poured concrete, or IN the poured concrete?

In theory, how far down from the surface should the pipes be?

Most often I find them in, not under.
I would use the PL and at the bottom of the wall. I install some short pressure treated 2 X 4's from the stud to the concrete wall so if the wall gets bumped it does not move back.

They should be in the middle of the pad but unless you get the concrete guys to pull them up when they pour, they quite often end up near the bottom
