Is it worth fitting a magnetic filter?
If your central heating system has been treated with corrosion inhibitor, a magnetic filter may not be necessary. However, it’s useful to be able to spot the signals that your heating system might benefit from the addition of one of these filters.
Should I fit MagnaClean?
MagnaClean® Professional is suitable for all central heating systems and can be fitted anywhere on the main circuit. However, in order to achieve the best protection for the boiler, it is recommended that MagnaClean Professional is fitted after the last radiator before the boiler.
How long does a MagnaClean filter last?
|MagnaClean Pro 2||10 years|
|MagnaClean Micro 2||10 years|
|All other ADEY MagnaClean filters||2 years|
Do you have to fit a magnetic filter for central heating?
Magnetic filters are most commonly added to a boiler during installation, they’re not essential but the installer may recommend having one. If you’d like to add a magnetic filter to your heating system but aren’t looking to replace your boiler then you can still have one fitted to your existing system.
Does the MagnaClean go on the flow or return?
Re: Circulating pump on flow – where to place the Magnaclean There is simply the boiler flow top outlet and the Return the lower outlet in 28mm . As usual the condensate trap is at the bottom.
Where should MagnaClean be fitted?
MagnaClean Professional is suitable for all central heating systems and can be fitted anywhere on the main heating circuit. In order to achieve the best protection for the boiler, it is recommended that MagnaClean Professional is fitted between the last radiator and the boiler (see diagram overleaf).
Can I clean MagnaClean myself?
When you have a MagnaClean filter fitted, it collects attracts the particles that cause sludge and this can then be cleaned off as part of a regular boiler service. It’s also something you can do yourself.
How often should I clean my boiler filter?
around once per year
How often should I clean a magnetic filter on a boiler? Your magnetic filter should be thoroughly cleaned around once per year. It’s important to do this regularly to prolong the life of your boiler. If you allow the filter to become full and clogged with debris and sludge, you’re risking a boiler breakdown.
What happens if you don’t clean your MagnaClean?

MagnaClean magnetic filters can be fitted to an existing heating system, meaning that you don’t need a new boiler to enjoy the benefits of one. If you’re due to have a new boiler installed into your home soon then a magnetic filter is often fitted alongside it at the same time.
How much does a gas fitter cost for a magnaclean?
I don’t really want to spend £340 at the moment if I don’t need to. the magnaclean itself is around £90, and i think a gas fitter would fit you one for less than £100. have you thought about having the system powerflushed, to remove all the crap in the system?
Why do you need a magnaclean for a heat exchanger?
The hot water circulating around your heating system picks up bits of debris (or magnetite) which can eventually build up in the system. A MagnaClean attracts all these bits of debris with a magnet as the water flows through it, preventing a build up of sludge in the heating system or on the heat exchanger. Where will the MagnaClean be installed?
When do I need to remove the magnetic filter from my boiler?
The sludge that the magnetic filter is clearing from the heating system needs to be removed from the filter itself every now and then. You can ask an engineer to do this during the annual service of your boiler. What if I Don’t Have a Magnetic Filter?
