It's taking many years to renovate my house. Part of that renovation is living in the house while I work on it so I needed heat. I installed temporary baseboards on a conventional boiler using Watts Pex with O2 barrier.
I just noticed this after the end of the first run of baseboard. Anyone else seen this? To me it looks like a tubing defect or did I do something wrong?
I'm not a pro and this was intended to be temporary only so there's not much I could have done with a claim if it did fail. It's disturbing and would have gone unnoticed if it were buried in a wall.

Have you exceeded the temperature limit on the boiler water? PEX is fussy with that.

I dialed it to 190°... too high? I inspected the entire length... this is the only spot it's impacted.
