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.

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.
