The pump should be pumping away from the heater where the expansion tank is located. Circulating water will draw the temperature of the system down to the slab temperature and will rise as the slab is heated. As your flow is slowed down to .5 gpm due to the tubing resistance, there is plenty of time to cool on the way through the slab.
