comment How to attach closet flange to sub floor
Sounds good, I'm going to use the Set-Rite kit, using their spacer below. I'm only using it because the flange sits about flush with the finished floor, and I think it should be a bit higher to prevent leakage this time.

comment Is this a bleeder? Why won't it close?
Thanks for the advice, I just couldn't find bleeders anywhere else so I thought this would work. Got the heating company coming soon, but is it okay to turn on the water the way the valve is?

comment What are the possible ways to prevent heating pipes in an entryway from freezing?
I think the idea behind #2 is good, personally. Basically just wire a second thermostat in parallel for the same zone, so that if the mudroom gets too cold it trips the same zone. Is that stupid/dangerous? I've actually thought about doing this, myself, using a RaspberryPi computer to trip a relay for the parallel connection. I would want to program it so that if the weather is below 10F outside then the circulator runs every other hour for 5 minutes, enough to get the water moving, even if it trips the furnace to run...

I have a similar problem with my woodstove, and up to this point I just have to be mindful that it's cold enough out that I need to make sure the baseboard heat circulate so the water keeps moving. I actually use IFTTT.com to text me when it gets below 10F outside, as that's when I start to have problems.

comment Using PEX for baseboard run
Is it okay to use the oxygen barrier PEX for any other projects if I need it? I don't mind buying 100' of it to have around if I can use it for everything...
