A marvel of modern science

Comments about Quik Trak 7" x 48" Trak:

A routered piece of 1/2 plywood with flashing glued to the back. I like that it's been done for me already, but this is not exactly technologically mind-blowing. Just convenient.

A royal Pain with Hardwood Floors

By ScubGuy

Comments about Quik Trak 7" x 48" Trak:

I installed about 700 sq ft. of quik trak. I highly recommend installing with a senco automated screw gun which eliminates bending over!

Your final flooring material will make a HUGE difference in just how big of a pain quik trak makes your project. I was installing regular hardwood floors - they took about twice as long to install as you have to layout the entire HARDWOOD floor first to insure you don't need to nail where your parallel (to the flooring) pex return lines are. A floating floor or carpet would be MUCH easier to work with.

Anxiety levels are very high as you hold your breath you don't hit a pex line with one of the 3000 flooring staples! 5/16 pex is a wirsbo only product which means there are no parts for it like 1/2" pex. 5/16 manifolds only come from wirsbo.

I also installed 1000 sq. ft. of underfloor aluminum panels and would highly recommend these if you have the access to the underside of the floor. They are less expensive too.

  • Quik Trak 7" x 48" Trak

    Q:

    My tile installer ran screws through tubing in three spots. all at end of loop on last sheet of cement board. Will need to install two repair connectors( either side of radius), 6 in total. Any problem with this? The total floor area is around 100 sq'. I would prefer not to pull entire floor if it can be avoided.
    And, no, I am not the tile installer.

      A:

      We would recommend that you try to put repair couplings (part A4010313) in if you can. It may be difficult to get the couplings to fit in the panel (and to get them to come out flush with the top of the panel), but replacing the entire loop of tubing and potentially all the panels in that loop would be a much more difficult and costly job.

      I would take it all up for such a small area. Replace entire line, too much expansion to worry about so many repairs, Reinstall cement board myself to be sure, run compressed air while installing to now your good, and don't use the same tile installer if he's that oblivious to details.

  • Quik Trak 7" x 48" Trak

    Q:

    Do you install felt paper before Quik Trak on the subfloor or after? One recommended to use Tyvek, is that a good idea?
    Asked on 7/5/2013 by Apollonios from norwalk ct.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      What is the felt supposed to do? In roofing, the felt is part of the water barrier. First defense: shingles. Second defense: felt. In walls, Tyvek is also water (plus air) barrier. First defense: sheathing. Second defense: Tyvek. With hydronic flooring there isn't really a barrier you need, other than a barrier for heat. That's why you insulate underneath. But you didn't really ask about that.
      In any case, in my kitchen we put the Quik Trak right over the subfloor with a zillion drywall screws. Over top went thinset and backerboard, then tile. It works beautifully. Nice, warm floors.
      Cheers, Robert.

      install the paper between the quiktrax and the flooring you are
      installing. I installed a floating floor system with an integral cushioned
      back directly over the quiktrax and it worked great.

      A:

      Ours was installed with drywall screws. I've heard it argued that these are not very strong nor moisture resistant. But methinks that if your pex is leaking under tile, thinset, backerboard, etc. the rust resistance of a drywall screw is really not an issue. The installer put in a lot of screws but they had an auto feed drill driver and screws are cheap. We put the quicktrack long axis parallel to the floor joists and We ended up with a very "massive" floor in the sense that it was very solid.

  • Quik Trak 7" x 48" Trak

    Q:

    can those loops of quik trak can be connected to the same manifold used also for baseboards ? i am asking in terms of heat level and pex diameter ? are quiktrak should use different temperature than baseboards heaters for example the slantfin ?

      A:

      No,
      You should be running in the range of 150 degrees for the baseboard, and more like 100 degrees for the radiant in your floor. They should be on seperate manifolds. We are very happy with our radiant...

      A:

      You will not want to have your floor heat the same temp as your baseboard -
      Baseboard should be much hotter.
      However you can achieve the temp differential using a heat exchanger.
      Really, the baseboard and floor board should be on different loops of the
      manifold and at different temps.
      We installed several a hybrid systems like this with baseboard and floor
      radiant and it works great.

      I don't think you can do this. The baseboard temps are normally about 160 degrees and the pex floor temperatures are about 100 degrees. My setup has a mixing valve to lower the floor heat temperature.

      quik trak accepts a 5/16 pex, which has an OD of slightly under 1/2 inch. i'm certain it is smaller than the 3/4 lines run for baseboard.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      In-floor systems typically use a lower water temperatures than baseboard radiators. The only way you would be able to use the same manifold is if you used a lower water temperature for your baseboards and were able to get enough flow to the baseboards through a PEX size that is compatible with the manifold you use (QuikTrak only works with 5/16" PEX).

  • Quik Trak 7" x 48" Trak

    Q:

    We're interested in using Quik Trak in our basement, which is currently a tiled slab. The tile have been down since the 40's, so there's no way they're coming up, and they might also be asbestos, so we've been told to just let them alone. My questions are:

    -Can we lay QT right over this? I know a subfloor is recommended, but ceiling clearance is a real issue.

    -How can it be attached to concrete?

    - Assuming we can do this, QT is 1/2 inch, so what's the best way to save space on top? If we go with hardwood, is there a minimum thickness? But then area rugs would make it even worse.

    - If we go with wall-to wall carpet, can we get away with 1/4 inch ply over QT under carpet? Thanks!

      A subfloor is necessary as per the manufacturer. You can either glue or nail down the subfloor. You can get away with 1/4" plywood over the top of the Quik Trak.
