Radiant PEX in Concrete Slab
There seems to be several opinions on this questions. I value the opinions on this forum more than some of the other places. In a 5″ slab for a garage floor, using 1/2″ pex spaced 12″ apart; I have 4″ under slab EPS with 4″ perimeter EPS, with 2″ of the perimeter cut at 45 degrees to reduce the “channel” width around the floor.
Is it worth the time, effort and money to use rebar with chairs to place the pex near the center of the slab? I understand there is some benefit; just whether the benefit vs. risk of damage from cutting is significant. Thanks for any advice.
