In addition, half of the water is completely safe from an environmental and sanitary point of view. In the course of its operation, water radiant floor does not generate electromagnetic radiation hazardous to the health. Used pipes can withstand temperature up to a hundred degrees. Special attention is paid to the fact that there are no joints in the floor of the tube, in other words, the floor is laid in the whole tube!
