How to install Linoleum with infloor hydronic heating
 
Hi there. I'm having a technician install pex tubes onto my kitchen subfloor but I then want to install a linoleum floor on top. I believe I have to use self levelling concrete and then the flooring. Is there anything else I should do or be aware of? Do I have to 'dam' up the edges of the floor? Is this difficult for a fairly unexperienced DIY'er? Thanks!

Before you even get to that part, are you going to be installing real Linoleum or a sheet vinyl? There is a huge difference.

it will be VCTs (vinyl compost tiles) . Sorry about the late response!

They are "vinyl composition tile". You need to ask the manufacturer of the heating system to see what is required.

So the installer suggested just using their adhesive. I was wondering if there was anything else anyone suggest for ease of future removal/replacement. If not, the adhesive seems very straight forward.
