    I am in the process of planning the remodeling of a full bathroom, and
    have question about Slant Fin baseboard radiator unit.

    The Slant Fin website shows several lines of residential units. I am
    considering the Fine/Line 30RR Series in a four foot length.

    How do I determine the flow rate ? Either 1 GPM or 4 GPM specs are
    given at that website. http://www.slantfin.com/spec-30rr.html

    Is there marking shown at my boiler that would tell me the rated flow
    rate? I know that the copper pipe size is 3/4 inch.

    Regards,

    Several things determine flow rate. Circulator size is the real factor, but
    it also has to do with the restriction in the piping (legnth, diameter[3/4",
    i know], how many ells, etc). The markings on the boiler don't mean a whole
    lot.

    Besides, most all baseboard is figured at 600 BTU's per linear foot at 180°
    water, more or less. If you look at the chart on that page, there's not a
    lot of difference between the flow rates.
