              Comments about 7 ft. Multi/Pak 83A Baseboard:

              We used this product along with other sizes to provide baseboard heating in our master bedroom, master bathroom and hall bathroom. All sizes work seamlessly together. The units come complete with everything you need except end caps and corner pieces. You order these separately. I was able to reduce the anmount of baseboard heater linear footage by 1/2 over my older units. Alsio, beacuse you get the whole system, it is extremely easy to install. The completed unit then works great. No effort at all!

                                                        My old unit needed new covers but I didn't see a way to replace just that without removing the heating element. I'm glad I bought this. The new heating element was a little too long so I used a pipe cutter and removed some fins to make it fit. The cover fit perfectly.[...] should have included better instruction.Being a novice, I bought pipe, soldier and flux and practiced sweating before installing. I had no problems installing this, although an old joint had to be re-soldiered.I will likely buy more for the rest of my house; some covers only (as I don't have ready access to a sandblaster to refinish to old ones) and some whole pieces (where the old fins are really mangled.)

Check the output of your current units, and match that against the output of the 83A units (BTUH per foot for each). If you don't know what type units you have then measure the size of the fins, count the number of fins per inch, go to the Slant-Fin website and look for a unit that has the same fin size and count as your existing, and then match that against the output of the 83A units.

Used PEX and Sharkbite fittings where sweating was almost impossible. On the PEX: make sure it's heating grade, not plumbing grade.

All I would have to purchase additionally for this to be fully assembled are the end caps correct? But besides the end caps the mulit/pak comes with everything else that it needs to provide heat efficiently once connected?

It is 3 1/2" from the finished floor to center on the wall penitration. All holes must be at least a 1/2" bigger than the outside diameter of the pipe you are using. If you are using pex, this is especially critical. Avoid contact of the pex to any sub floor or structure. If there is contact, you will hear creaking as the tube gets hot an cools down. We recommend all penitrations be piped in copper and the pex connection is made below the floor system or within the wall so that expansion and contraction is not an issue and is properly compensated for.

Ohio...160 degree water @ 1 gpm...I came up with 22 feet but that seems way too high.

This doesn't seem extremely high, but our ballpark estimate would put your need closer to 30 BTUs per square foot, in which case you'd need about 18.5 feet of baseboard at the given temperature and flow ratings.
