In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
Again, it's the brand, not the delivery system that determines the quality.
I've seen Rehau, Uponor and Vieaga all sold on the net, sometimes at lower prices. But as Bob pointed out, do you want to give up the backing of your local distributor for a few cents per foot?
Radiant flooring is the Mecedes Benz of heating systems. I've never had a client ask me to whittle a few bucks off of the price by going with inferior tubing which is something I would refuse to do anyway. They either except the price tag or choose a less expensive method of heating.
Let the Walmart-mentality people go there looking for a heating contractor.
Search this site for "blistering pex" and you'll find pics of Chinese pex that began to blister a short time after it was installed.
If you have the skills and knowledge to design and install radiant floors properly, then please don't cheapen this craft or yourself by trying to cut corners with inferior materials. Radiant has gotten too much of a bad rap from the numerous hacks that have already done that.
Killjoys........this is why we do not have a good joke department.

I will also look forward to @chrisj
using the term furnace in all future discussions he participates in.
I call mine Cedric and don't worry about it... He responds just fine to that.
Furnace heats air, boiler heats water.
