Can EPS foam be used under the concrete slab?
EPS is about 1/3 the cost of XPS. We are using underslab hydronics, and would like to save the money if it’s a viable product. Is there anything wrong with using the EPS?
Will the EPS be strong enough to walk on while installing the pipes & pouring the concrete? Are there other durability issues or performance issues?
