Discussion in 'Vertical and Horizontal Loops' started by TJamesW, Dec 31, 2012.
I'll be running horizontal fields. What's the rule of thumb for planting over them / near them?
we bury our loops a minimum of 5' and don't worry too much about planting
Thanks- I'll be having raised beds with irrigation and thought the irrigation water could/t hurt efficiency.
My rule is at least 12" below what the local JHA wants for a footer.
The loops if as deep as I think is good should not give tender shoots cold roots. In spring the dirst warms from both directions.
This is all just solar heating. Very long term, but still solar.
Tjames: Just got home from a spending frenzy and am not yet hitting on all 8 yet. I would direct you to the December issue of Plumbing and Mechanical that crossed my desk today. It contains an essay by Siggy on what we have been typing about.
should be good to go!!
Sounds like no issues. Thanks all.
