I thought Craig was one off the owners in the past, could be just a another guy same name.  Not bad on wood usage, in cold weather I burn full cord every 10 - 12 days.  How much home are you heating? New construction?

My home was built in 68, fully remodeled in 90's (needs to be redone again)
2k SF on the main level and a full finished basement, keep the stat at 70*, also heat the dhw, and a 1500sf garage with radiant,  keep the garage set for 65* but its been staying in the mid 40's with this cold snap we all been seeing.

I installed using the rehau pipe, buried as deep as my septic would allow,  Hit a lateral when I was trenching  :o

No, not much damage to the septic tile, fortunately it was clay tile and I just skimmed the top of the pipe, I only noticed I hit it after I was cleaning out the trench with the shovel. I used some of the sticky backed asphalt flashing material to cover the hole,  I applied 3 layers of this and put a couple shingles over the pipe to protect any rocks/ soil from putting too much pressure on the patch.
