    Hello All,

    I would be really grateful for some advice

    I am fitting a new slim radiator and altering the existing 10mm pipe run under the floor and up the cavity which will then increase to 15mm to come through the wall to connect to the rad.
    I have checked that the Max watts for 10mm is 2500w and my new rad is only 400w.

    Can anyone confirm that what I am doing is ok.

    Thanks for any help.

    Depending on how warm you want your bathroom and how well insulated it is, 400W might not be enough to keep it warm, especially if heat is only pumped through the radiator in the bathroom when the house thermostat demands it.

    If you use it for putting towels over, then that kills the heat output.
    So better to have an oversized towel rail/rad
