Help me out here guys! When I installed my underground, the budget was only large enough to get a 300' roll of pex. When it was measured, it was going to be enough.
Well,,,, after digging the trench too deep and not taking the path originally intended,,, it wasn't enough. A 50' piece cut in half and spliced onto the 150' pieces got it out of the ditch. There was a wood boiler hooked up to it first and it always was overfiring. I suspect it weakened the splices. That and there is this class action lawsuit against Zurn, the maker of the splices. Anyway over the last couple years I have been slowly losing pressure out the pex. I think the corrigated drain pipe is full of water and I am burning coal WAY beyond what has ever been used. My first year I burned 4 tons or so for the whole year, including summer DHW. This year I have burned 4 tons from the middle of Sept to now. The pex isn't holding pressure for more than a couple days.
Anyone know of a product that would help me out on this? I have been told pepper. The boiler solder looked good until the spec sheet said that it had to be exposed to air to work. Thought about the Bars leak but am worried that it will plug up all the slow moving spots in my system. Any and all ideas to fix it will be appreciated
