Our proprietary panels have triple “O” ring hookups, connections that flex, and an oxygen barrier within the PEX. The likelihood of a leak is extremely small.
We require that every system undergo a 100 psi pressure test to ensure that all fittings and panel connections are airtight and have no leaks.
If, for some reason, a tube within the panels gets punctured, the damaged section can be repaired using simple press-fit couplings and PEX tubing. The radiant system is a closed-loop system and contains a set amount of water. Our systems are not connected to fresh water or an auto-fill system of any type. This ensures that, in the rare case of a leak, the amount of water damage would be minimal, and limited to only the water within the system.
A single 2’x8′ radiant panel only contains a quarter gallon of water.
