Thanks for the encouragement. I got a free hot water heater tank today to do the prototyping on.
I believed I used the term DX correctly. I will in fact be running my evap coil (one long copper loop) in my 30 foot deep bore hole.
I had though about the ground being slightly acidic..... I used a garden soil tester and measured 6.5. Not bad but I have no idea what it is at 10, 20 or 30 feet. So I will for sure be coating/painting it.
Yes I planned on using some foam spacers to hold the tubing to the outer walls of the bore hole til I can fill it with sand/dirt.
1/4 inch was by ball park guess as well. I will do the math with the exact compressor once I find it laying in someone's junk pile.
Thank you for your advice, I will be starting my own thread when I get started. No defrost..... that sure does sound nice.
