    Radiant tubing and toilet wax seal

    Hello everyone. I'm putting radiant in a bathroom floor using uponor quik trak panels and the 5/16" tubing. Is there a minimum distance I should keep between the tubing and toilet wax seal?

    I wouldn't worry.

    Over the years I've had many people bring this up but I've left wax seals on my dash before in the summer and they don't get significantly deformed and that is way hotter than any radiant floor would get. I think the floor would be uncomfortable to walk on before it would be a danger to the wax seal.

    12" is what I do

    keeps the tubes out near where your feet are anyways. I have seen wax rings that over time flowed out of place with the radiant too close. Then I used the foam rubber rings to replace them.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.

    is the best waxless seal I have used. Deep boot and a tight fit even inside scaled cast iron pipe.
