Here is the proper way. Large quantity though.

Thanks for all the great suggestions and links!  Gary: I really liked
your site with all of the pics and descriptions...well done!  As I've
been lying awake nights thinking about all of the things I'd like to
heat with my proposed system, I'm thinking that hotter water coming to
the house might serve me better, but maybe not.  I'll be looking at
you calculations closer to see if I can figure them out and maybe do
some calculating of my own.  I've been toying with the idea of not
only heating my domestic hot water via some sort of heat transfer
method, but also of heating some 4' x 5' slabs in the floor with
radiant tubes.  I'd have to make them up as I've got hard pine floors
now and my wife really likes them so I'm trying to convince her that
some nice tiled insets would not only look good, but would keep her
toes warm.  : )  It's all in the drawing stages right now, but the
underground pipe will have to happen this spring as I'm digging up
near the house for some much needed drainage and the solar pipe will
be crossing that pipe, so I want to do them both at the same time.
Thanks again to everyone who replied...they are a great help and have
really got me thinking about how to go about this.

 I have just the thing for you. I found this today by
accident.

 Thanks for the link...with shipping it comes to about $.95 per foot,
so I'll compare it to blue board and see how that compares.   Looks a
lot easier to install with minimal construction as compared to the
made up box with blue board.

 I wondered if duct tape would be in order for the
joints.

Also. what would you do to protect this in the ground?
  Sand pad it on top? and gravel on bottom to keep wet
from sitting on it for years, maybe?
