    Its amazing what you are doing mate.. I love that fact that just late in your carrier you can use this to not only, spend a lot of time on a project which constitutes as video content. Have complete freedom in live to dedicate time towards this project allowing you to spend more time at home with the family as well as allowing you to focus on any more buisness ventures and just plan or be more involved rather then just headed the the next project on Clip-Share. And all together while teaching new skills and building work ethic by doing this, you make the property extremely valuable when you move out. Its very cool. I don't mean to say to much else but just over all I think Its a very cool, smart, and Hard project you started.. but good luck with jt.

      @Mr J it more or less turns green and dissolves when in contact with some forms of older insulation. It will literally disintegrate if used for drain lines on tankless non condensing water heaters . Lines connected to close loop recirculation systems can put pin holes all over the pipes .
      Alot of the deterioration is due to source water .

    Interesting fact any geothermal expert can confirm: Around 7' under ground the ambient Temps will always be around 55-63°F. It will be extremely affordable to heat that tunnel to the point doing an air exchange down there would be more affordable than heating directly into his home. That said, modifications would be needed including insulating the shed lid

  • Jeremy Rumble

    I reckon you could use that loop to cool your house in the summer because the tunnel will be naturally cooler so if you just cycle the water without the heater on then it should equalize the temperatures. (May require additional valves and/or jerry-rigging the pump in the central heating boiler.)

      @jonathan wright firstly, soldering isn't welding 😜
      Looking at the clip, it's likely he has a different kind of elbow joint. I think one of the brands stateside is called "shark bite". It's got gaskets and little metal teeth back angled so once the pipe goes in it can't come back out.
      You'll notice it's a more blocky and dark colored elbow than the ones in the tunnel

      Broughman9 At this point, I figure it’s the other way around, where he can isolate the house and heat just the tunnel if he wants to. If he ever sells the property, it’ll be as a bunker and tunnel with an included house, everything above ground is a secondary concern.

      @Sidewinder Forge F'd if the copper decided to freeze and break in winter. Wouldn't it be less costly, labour and easier if it was plexi pipe for that section going back to copper on the ends?
      I mean other than the asthetic look, copper is no longer the best choice, especially for efficiency (given you need to insulate it to be anywhere near efficient, then you can't see it so what difference is it making at that point beyond it lasting a lifetime, but modern plastics are lasting a lifetime too so it just comes down to cost really...)

      Don’t take much surface area to emit a lot of heat. Depends on how much flow and temp of water. Hope he has a outdoor reset control for the mild times. 3gpm and 125f on the snow melt work great this winter. Then again we only hit like 3in a hour for a short burst. All through pex-c barrier.

    brilliant adding essential heat to a underground tunnel with zero insulation.
    Not even counting this surrounding Earth/soil, The thermal mass of the metal tunnel and concrete is significant.
    Also being underground, the tunnel will never drop below freezing But instead probably hover around 60°. No matter how hot or cold it is outside

    I wonder, since it's in the ground and the openings are inside, isn't it usually somewhat warm (10-15°c) in there? Without the heating?
    I mean, in the dead of winter, would it freeze there? Or be 5°c, or 10?
    Also definitely cool in summer I think, that's nice.
