    kitec orange failure in seattle

    kitec orange has 3 layers, does the inner liner of plastic reain have ox barrier? We have installed an open heating system and the pipe is failing. It is undserstood that this type heating system has many short commings, however my question is should that be an excuse for the failed pipe?

    How is the pipe failing? Is there any possibility of exceeding the temperature and/or pressure rating of the tube? The fact that it is an open system should have no effect on the tubing.
