Yes, no drain tile. That's whats nice about Badger, they can make it anyway you need it. My pipe run is all indoors and clamped to the ceiling, no drain tile needed. Just 4 pipes, insulated from each other and wrapped in insulation. There website is not great but they insulate the PEX themselves and supply insulated pipe to the whole country. They actualy have a lot more than is on there website. I didn't see the size I needed in oxygen barrier PEX so I called. They were very helpful and we talked about the install and the fact the I was not putting in a trench. It turned out they had what I needed in stock, it just wasn't listed on there website.
Don't forget, OXYGEN BARRIER PEX.
You will likely need 1.25" to make certine your 150,000+ BTU's from your EFM make it into your house.

It's just a few easy equations to help yuo get a handle on what size pipe and circualtor pump you need to get your BTU's to your house.
You can look at my install thread " Yellow Flame, A Christmas Stoker Boiler
My pump sizing calulation is at the bottom of page 10. You may also want to paint your boiler a nice bright color.
