Output of 3/8 pex and aluminum transfer plates

my radiant ceiling and wall project in my bathroom . It actually went in alot smoother than expected . I tried silicone on the plates , some soap , ran hot and cold water through the pex . The only thing that worked was a lump hammer and chunk of wood on the back of the plate , and the floor joists as backup .

Now that it's all in ( and the wrong time to ask ) I was wondering if anyone knows the output of 3/8 pex and 40 feet of single track transfer plates ? The total run of pipe came out to 130 feet . I'll plug in the numbers for a heatloss in a bit . The bathroom will be on its own zone and I'm hoping to run it on as low a temp as possible . Thanks in advance again .

    Watts Radiant has

    a heat loss program with 3/8ths(radiant Works) . is free. can be imported to taco load Match.
    they have a sorta default temp of like 92.7 degree F ....you plug in the numbers for that size room with the insulation in the celing whether it has outside wall etc...
  • Thanks Weezbo

    I'll order their program . I got around to the heatloss - 2000 btus if I did it right . I'm assuming there's more than enough plates to keep the place warm , by a long shot .
