I'm looking for some information on a Driveway Snow Melting System for may driveway.
It's 40x25 now with ashpalt. I want to replace it with cement with a stamped patteren on it ... I already know how to put the pipes in the cement.

My question is:
Can I put the tubing in the ground in a cylindical shape and I need to know how deep do I have to go and how long (loops) will I need to to warm the anti-freeze to the earths constant tempeture of 57º and will this do the job of heating the cement enough to melt the snow.
Of course I will have "snow controls" on this system inorder to start it automatically.
Any help would be great.

Thanks for your reply, I already have access to the materials through a friend at a plumbing supply.
