PEX radiant heat

We are having our 6x8 bathroom remodeled with tile floor. Can we run PEX from the radiator already in the bathroom? I know electric floor is cheap/easy, but I'd like to know about tying into our existing hot-water heat to avoid timers/wall switches in the bath.

It's a very warm radiator right now, and I don't want to ruin that; but sure would be nice to have warm toes too.

Re: PEX radiant heat

You can not run radiant heat on the same zone as you radiators. The radiant has to be run with a much lower water temperature.
