Hi All

little advice please

I have moved in to a new build and the boiler is high up on the wall in a cupboard and the pipes go straight up in to ceiling so can put it on the retun.

I would like to fit a magnaclean professional 2 the only place I can fit it is in the main bathroom on the 2nd floor in where the hot tank is but i'm stuck as i have 2 heating zones.

Were it me I’d be tempted to push back to the builder as this surely will invalidate your boiler warranty

You may be better with the TF1 compact, as that can be installed horizontally. It might save you some headache and it’s a good filter.

And put a bit of pipe insulation on the hot outlet pipe from top of cylinder.
Odd that the discharge pipe has been insulated

Yes you can & easily done. The other guys have mentioned other makes of filter as well, which are good; but each to their own. I do prefer to stick with the Magnaclean myself.

thanks I picked the Magnaclean due research on the others reliability on leaking and efficiency as the Magnaclean i got does the magnetic and non magnetic in the water. Ill measure up to see the space and not to block other parts on the tank

all reviews i found on the sprirotrap is the magnet is too weak to go through the brass body and falls off it. the leaking on the magaclean is due to cross threading the cap over tightening not cleaning it properly

The Fernox TF1 omega is brass bodied, compact and can be fitted horizontally and has powerful neothingy magnet centrally located too. Seemingly bulletproof and I've moved over to them from Spiro
