How to bury steam lines if you have to--
I previously posted that I have numerous underground (under 10" concrete also) steam pipe leaks. Two pipe system, built 1928.
My insurer has actually agreed to do the destruction/construction to re-pipe this whole area of my house (about 1200sf with a second floor above that also gets steam from the rotted underground lines).
Soo, what's the best way to protect the replacement underground steam lines that will be installed? It has been suggested to build concrete trenches and run the pipes in them, but I'm sure the insurance co will not pay for that. So what could I wrap the pipes in to best protect them with modern materials? I think they have to be insulated first or I'll be heating mother earth!
Thanks in advance for your advice,
