Watts radiant onix tubing...rip out?
I need help.
I have an oil boiler system with forced hot water baseboards on the first and second floor. I was getting very little out of the baseboards the past few days. The heater guy came to look at it, tried flushing the system and couldn't get enough flow to flush it. His attempts made the situation worse so now there is no heat. Said I had blockages, blamed the Watts radiant onix tubing. Said it was defective, is known to be defective and allowing oxygen into the system, and the only thing to do was rip it out and put in new.
My home is ten years old, built in 2006. To replace the tubing would require going through walls and ceilings to the cost of tens of thousands of dollars....which I don't have.
Is there a way to clear these clogs without ripping out all the tubing?
Is there a known problem with this tubing? I found references to a Goodyear tubing class action suit, but that was reduced before my building was even built.
Do you have any suggestions for me? I am panicked about this.
