    I am planning on having a geothermal system installed with a horizontal loop. Once this is installed can it be driven over with a pickup truck or a tractor? Its not going to be under the driveway but I would like to be able to drive over it if I needed to.

    I experienced a bit of settling over some of my 5 trenches, probably more from heavy rain then driving over them. Not more then 5-6 inches.

    Mine are closer to 8 feet down.

    We drive over with heavy construction equipment after installation. The pipe is sturdy enough.

    When I had dirt delivered after the digging the dump truck sunk like it was in butter. My ground is like damp beach sand though.
