"What is the maximum allowable set for water?"  I am unclear about what you're asking...  Are you asking what to add to the uniform DL of the floor?  it wouldn't be much...  I'd use 8-10 psf  per inch of gypcrete topping that the radiant system is encased in.

Seasons greetings list,

I think this is on-topic...

For a radiant floor system with tubes installed in direct contact with the
plywood subfloor, what is the maximum allowable set for water?

I have an inquiry in to the APA, but thought I'd try here also.
