Tubing bends easily and takes a lot of abuse before kinking.It's a perfect match for Warmboard Radiant Panels.

                    My wife and I just installed 1/2" Rifeng Pex-Al-Pex on our 1-1/8" 7 lam ply Warmboard Radiant Flooring. Tubing rolls out easily from a loaned Pex Reel Dolly and fits into grooves nicely. Tubing appears to lay flat with little tendency to lift in the 180 degree bends. Had no difficulty with bury points; tubing stayed put with not much more than being tapped down with a wooden block and a light dead-blow mallet.

                    This pex is very easy to use and can bend very tight radius. I used it for a wall heat system in a basement bathroom. I needed no professional help for the install other than the hook-up at the boiler. I also added underfloor heat for my master bath using this product. One you make the bend, the pex keeps its shape.

                        I'm sure you can, but a more efficient way would be with the use of radiant panels. I installed this pex in panels sitting atop a slab (in Maine) and it works fantastic.

                        Better to use 1/2" or 5/8" spaced no more than 9"-12" apart. Pex should be
                        installed closer to the bottom of the slab - 1" standoff or cheap broken
                        pavers can be used to raise the supporting mesh. Lastly - and most
                        importantly .. remember to always insulate the entire concrete slab from
                        below. Better to use rigid foam instead of bubble foil insulation. Use as
                        much thickness of foam as your budget allows - at least 1.5". Also good
                        idea to insulate where the slab meets the concrete wall ..

                        You would need two PAP-0500M adapters, a TBNL1-08, and a chamfering tool with a for 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX. You could use a copper x female NPT adapter and a PAP-0500M fitting for connections to copper pipe.

                        A:

                        You can splice the line by just cutting out a short piece of the 1/2" pipe and add a coupling.  I know this has a fitting in the line.  We usually use water proof tape and tape the fitting and this works well.  I think we use Monster water proof tape.
                        When we need to connect to copper, we put a 1/2" female compression copper fitting on the copper line then us a 1/2" male adapter, connect this to the 1/2" female copper compression fitting, then push the pipe into the 1/2" male adapter.

                        The pex-al-pex has a layer of aluminum wrapped around it and then another coat of pex over it so it gives better heat transfer properties and a totally impervious oxygen barrier as NO oxygen can pass through the aluminum.

                        Same stuff this just uses alu as the oxygen barrier. We use 1" and 1/2" that heat a 30X40 shop heats the house and dose the hot water for the house. when the pool is open it also heats the pool. I do know you have to use the good watts fittings that have the double o ring that go inside the tubing and a compression ring on the outside. I like the fittings if they ever leak i just change the o rings and it's good to go only had 2 fittings leak and it was because the o ring got pinched when it was installed.

                        A:

                        In a nut shell, Oxygen barrier tubing is used for radiant heating systems, because the metal leaches out of the boilers and is quite reactive with the water in the system.  The oxygen barriers slows this process.
                        The pex/al/pex tubing is much better as it completely eliminates this leaching process.  The TIG welded tube does does not allow any degradation of the water in the system.

                        A:

                        Tubing with oxygen barrier typically has a layer of Aluminum embedded in
                        it. This layer makes the tubing impervious to gases as well as liquids.
                        Theoretically, this minimizes the intrusion of oxygen into a closed loop
                        system. Manufacturers of cast iron boilers typically specify this kind of
                        tubing in order to honor their warranties on the life span of the boiler.

                      Q:

                      I'd like to create a radiant system heated by a heat exchanger mounted to a wood stove and laid under a brick floor (buried in the sand that the bricks are laid on). What are the odds this system would work to heat a dome structure with a diameter of 24 feet?

                        A:

                        Biggest problem I see with this plan is thermal conductivity. If the
                        dome structure is
                        well insulated it will probably work but would work much better if the
                        pex was buried
                        about two inches in a concrete slab and the bricks (Or better yet half
                        thick pavers with
                        a high thermal conductivity rating) were set into that.

                        It could work .. You would need to ensure some precautions are followed:
                        1) the flooring needs a thermal break from the ground. A min of 2" closed cell foam board with tongue & groove locked seams. Wouldn't hurt to tape seams also.
                        2) center feed the floor loops - run insulated 1.5" pipe to center and manifold to multiple 1/2" loops from there.
                        3) do heat loss calcs to ensure heat exchanger and heat source are up to the task.

                        I'm pretty sure if you check the specs you'll find this product has an oxygen barrier. I like it since it retains its shape once bent. It is conceivable it could also be located in a slab with a metal detector since it has a layer of aluminum.

                        It's vinyl coated aluminum, so I would say it is. We used it for hydronic floor heating directly under a new wood floor. But we did put a vapor barrier between the tubing and the underneath floor surface.

                        I have used this with 130 Psi air and have had no problems. as long as it passes local code i see no reason you couldn't use this as long as your using the right o ringed fittings.

                        Lots of math.
                        The smaller the tubing the lower the flow rate in gallons per minute.
                        The temperature differential between the holding tank or boiler and the area to be heated. How cold does it get in your area? How well insulated is the house? Lots of variables.
                        Number of BTU's per gallon, per minute, based on temperature differential, etc.
                        OR
                        There is software you can buy for planning a heating system.
                        OR
                        Just install 1/2" pex 12" on centers in the slab (or 16" if you are going under the sub-floor) and adjust the temperature and flow rate later to keep the room as warm as you like it.
                        The bigger the tubing the more flow and the more BTU's can be transferred to the living space in a given amount of time.
                        The variables are many and you have to spend some time to figure this out.

                        It depends on the flow you need. 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX can handle up to about 2.5 gallons of fluid per minute.
