SolaRoll radiant tubing deterioration - what to do?
I live in a home built in 1993/4 with radiant floor heat using SolaRoll rubber tubing. I was recently told that the
SolaRoll is deteriorating and I need to abandon it and put in a new heating system. Boiler was flushed and black residue was in water. They were able to flush the boiler finally and it seemed to clear it out. All three valves for 3 zones weren't checked, and the idea of flushing the system with a harsh chemical was abandoned because of the SolaRoll tubing.
Should I try further to replace valves and flush the current system with chemical or take the advice given and scrap the system.?? House is 2,000 s.f., in Albuquerque, frame/stucco. I"m not a fan of forced air, don't like the look of the splits,
would consider baseboard with water -- probably looking at $10,000+.
