    Nice work!
    The high density poly pipe they use for that work is great stuff. Ummm, unless you're the sprinkler dude that trenched through it :eek:

    The valve gets wired into the air handler and when there is a call for cooling or heating the valve opens and allows water to flow through the refrigerant coil. If it was my job Would have used brass but the guy I am working for bought this one at the plumbing supply house, it doesn't even have name on it but it has an irritrol style solenoid.

    Can you give us some more info about the poly and the home?
    • what size was the home
    • how much poly did you put out
    • how deep was it
    • did you just toss coils or was it strung out
    • what size is the poly

    I have been interested in Geothermal for here but no one does it except the ball park and the big offices down town. I don't know why, lets face it the earths temp is fairly steady once you get down a few feet. Thanks for the info.
