    What size tubing & how are you fastening it? Staple up w/without plates, staple down for wet bed, subray, warmboard, tying to wire mesh?

    It depends upon the method used...

    If you will be tying by hand, you can figure about an hour to an hour and a half per 250 foot loop.

    If you spend the money for a nice rebar tying tool, the time falls back significantly to about an hour per loop.

    It also depends upon the person doing the work. You or I will probably take a lot longer than the young Jamie would take... We don't get up and down as easy as we used to...

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    I like tracking and have been using it exclusively for the past 10 years, I can lay a 250-300ft loop in a 1/2 hour average. Tying to rebar or mesh really sucks. ;P

    If I was tying it ,I'm sure it would be 1 1/2 days per loop

    Use the radiant matts and you can drop alot of tubing in a day.
