    Burn Pile on top of Geothermal Horizontal Loop Field

    Not your usual question... Are there any issues with putting a burn pile on top of a geothermal horizontal loop field? The pipes are buried approximately 6 ft under (before settling). It seem like the ground (which has a large percent of sand) would be more than enough insulation, but there may be something I haven't thought about.

    Not likely any lasting harm.

    Thanks for the burn link. Looks like anything below a foot is definitely safe as far as temperature goes.
