Loop field


Installation of loop field:

Based on your area, you have many options for loop fields. You can install a..

Loop field
Vertical Loop
Loop field
Diagonal Loop
Loop field
Horizontal Loop
Loop field
Pond Loop

Once you have chosen the most practical and desirable loop field for your home, the installation of the freon copper coil will be similar in nature. Here are the basics:

Horizontal

1. Cut your refrigerant copper lines to length(shipped with your system)
2. Clean and prep joints for soldering
3. Solder joints
4. Solder in Sacrificial anodes(shipped with your system)
5. Horizontal field application – Place copper loop in the ground on smooth surface with preferably (high conductivity AMERICAN DREAM Grout Formula)*optional*
6. Charge system with nitrogen and put under 5oo psi pressure for 24 hours(to ensure there are no solder joint leaks)
7. Horizontal loop application – Cover the loop with soft material (preferably the AMERICAN DREAM High Conductivity Grout Formula)
8. Carefully continue covering your loop with 1 foot of soft conductive material
9. Install your soaker hose(included with system)
10. Now carefully continue to cover your soaker hose with 6 inches of soft conductive material
11. Complete the back fill of your trench
12. Final check for pressure drop in loop and remove nitrogen charge from loop field
13. With everything testing positive your now ready to connect the loop field to the geothermal unit inside

Vertical/Diagonal

1. Cut your refrigerant copper lines to length(shipped with your system)
2. Clean and prep joints for soldering
3. Solder joints
4. Solder in Sacrificial anodes(shipped with your system)
5. Insert loop soaker hose and grout pump line into 3 inch bore hole
6. Charge system with nitrogen and put under 5oo psi pressure for 24 hours(to ensure there are no solder joint leaks)
7. After 24 hours of 500 psi pressure insert one loop at a time into the bore holes with soaker hose and grout pump
8. Pump AMERICAN DREAM high conductivity grout formula into bore hole removing hose as filling occurs
9. Repeat process until all loop has been successfully installed
10. Seal top 6 feet by pouring bentonite clay into bore hole
11. Final check for pressure drop in loop and remove nitrogen charge from loop field
12. With everything testing positive your now ready to connect the loop field to the geothermal unit inside

Pond

1. Cut your refrigerant copper lines to length(shipped with your system)
2. Clean and prep joints for soldering
3. Solder joints
4. Solder in Sacrificial anodes(shipped with your system)
5. Charge system with nitrogen and put under 5oo psi pressure for 24 hours(to ensure there are no solder joint leaks)
6. Final check for pressure drop in loop and remove nitrogen charge from loop field
7. Submerge copper coil into pond at a minimum depth of 6 feet
8. With everything testing positive your now ready to connect the loop field to the geothermal unit inside

Each of these ground coil options will be simplified and faster as a result of our freon copper loop.

Option 1. Contact us for our skid steer mounted drill for your vertical or diagonal drilling needs. We also will assist you in contracting with a local rock driller in you area.
Option 2. Contact us for our skid steer mounted trenching tool for your horizontal 6 ft. deep trench.
Option 3. Install your loop in a pond on your property(you can build a small pond very inexpensively)

Contact us about our AMERICAN DREAM Geothermal installation equipment and tackle this project with ease

Contact us to coordinate a local refrigerant technician to solder, test, and properly charge your system with R410 freon.
