I have a new home with hydronic in floor heat. It would appear that I have a zone problem .... I think one of the in floor tubes were crushed at the time the concrete was placed. Has anyone had this problem and how was it fixed?
Thx. I live in Alberta Canada and the weather is getting colder and having the heat working would be nice.

I am not sure how new home warranties are in Canada, but, in the U.S., you have at least one year to get anything fixed that does not work. If it is a crushed line, that means digging up the concrete and repairing the line. Since they are run in a serpentine manner, you will have a problem finding where the bad spot is unless it is leaking there and rises up in the floor.


If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.

Check out what your installation was. You may be lucky if they put in a parallel system for the unforseen. - It is commonly done in Europe and maybe in Canada.
