What kind of pipe was your original? Was it just the bad splice that was the problem with it?

Yes, the original is a 3 wrap pipe shipped with the Ridgewood stove. I have 2 pumps with one line each running to individuals heat pumps. I came just short in one of the lines and hence the underground split on the pex.

I have yet to un-buried the entire line, have dug out just the spot of the split as of now so, can't say anything on the shape of the rest of the line.

That stuff from Eastlake might work great on an overhead or interior installation but I've never heard of complete satisfaction when that type is  buried.  Most people on this site are recommending closed cell Rehau type for a reason...

I would guess that the ratio of outdoor boilers with wrapped type pipe is at least 10 wrapped to 1 foam. Of coarse you will hear of some bad results which a lot of the time was due to improper installation. Since over the years, there have been a lot of companies making it and also a lot of homemade attempts, there is going to be really varying results.
