    What underfloor heating systems do people recommend? I'm thinking of trying out the Buteline system for the job I'm doing at the moment.

    Maincor is my preferred choice so easy to work with and good back up sevice. Grahams plumbers merchants can supply it or available online cheers kop

    I've used Uponor a couple of times but on fairly small jobs where I've not needed to get the likes of Uheat involved. Anything big though and you are better off giving the plans to someone like Uheat to sort out the detail.

    I've been looking on eBay for pex-al-pex pipe. You can get some really good deals.

    Part of me thinks I should stick to named brands. Any thoughts?

    Stick to a good name if later on down the line you want to be able to get some spares

    A significant amount of stuff on eBay is counterfeit and/or rubbish quality. The only way to know what you are getting is to buy high-quality brands from approved stockists.

    How do you tell a high-quality brand? A good start is to check that they have a technical department that you can call/email and have a discussion in English with.

    I was thinking of getting the pipe from eBay and then getting a top end manifold. Maybe this is too risky

    I would be more concerned about cheap pipe in a concrete floor to be honest.

    And maybe not fitting the manifold

    I would get the pipe and manifold all from the same company/ manufacturer
