Yeah they are just as good and almost identical in design.

have had a Magnaflow for a few years nd definitely worth the expense.. just clean it once a year (amazing amount of gunk it collects) ..
a much cheaper alternative this so may recommend this to friends

B**ger I just bout one of these a month or two back for about £75 - It works really well, BARGAIN

About £50 cheaper than a magnaclean,so well worth a hot deal.All good engineers should fit one.

I've got a magnaclean installed in the house I've moved into. Is it easy to remove and clean. Any pointers would be great.

Turn off boiler,turn off isolation valves x2,undo air bleed on top of magnaclean to ensure the valves are holding/not passing,unscrew body with the tool that will probably be left with it,clean it out and I usually fill it back up with inhibitor,turn off bleed,turn on valves,air out with the bleed.check system pressure and possibly top up,turn on boiler.

Yep,YouTube would probably be better than my explanation lol.

Not as easy on a back boiler for a diy job. You would likely not have any local exposed 22mm pipework. Would probably be under the floor or well boxed in out of the way. Obviously easier on a wall mounted boiler as you normally have local pipework below the boiler.

Yes it would work perfectly if you could fit it or get a plumber to do it for you.

I assume this would work on my 15mm system with the correct adapters?

Nice find, order placed.

Utter rubbish the o ring in the lid leaks and the connection also leaks spirotech

Sorry spirotech are much better dont leak system heating everywhere.....avoid the SALUS remake.

Don't believe the British Gas hype, they moved from magnacleans to the spirotech and then sold significantly less because they are rubbish. Yes they are an all brass unit, but fit a magnaclean and a spirotech on the same system and see what one collects the most dirt

Was going to order but between this and another similar one they had a lot of comments mentioning leaks from the top seal which I doubt will be easy to find/replace in a few years

Do these things work? I have a Fernox TF1 on my system, I've no idea if it works or not. I had it fitted when I changed to a combi boiler 4 years ago by the plumber at the time (a complete w^&ker).

I think I've found some answer here >

Hit on collect at local store assuming a store near you has stock.

Cheers - managed to bag one. Can anyone recommend this as a DIY fix for a competent DIY'er? Have some plumbing experience...

Dose any one know of a law that compells tight ass land lord like Orbit to fit this sort of thing, please?

No law, it's your landlords heating system and he can do what he wants with it

mjccam*** My Land lords called orbit, even refused a written request to replace an out side(rather than in an apartment) light bulb that lights the way to wards the stairs to the front door-Yet they charge a service charge that is suposed to pay for this specific purpose

I would never let a plumber near my central heating system get a central heating engineer. Plumbers fix toilets and taps and shouldn't be allowed to touch much else.

Spirotech do not leak magnacleans leak end of....and this rubbish is not worth it.

Thanks op

Land lord or housing association?

mine has lots of black death in the system will it gradually remove it ?
Ordered one anyhow to give it a try!

Is there really a need for this?

My central heating has been absolutely fine for many many years now, without having anything like this attached. Wondering if it's just snake oil.

**Maevoric** regarding your reply-Land lord or housing association?--I don't understand?--Untill recently I only knew privale land lords that let a room in a house

Offer to pay for the luxury of a filter and I am sure your landlord will let you fit one. However, won't be many tenancies that require landlord to provide, let alone maintain, outside lighting. If it needs a new bulb, put one in, as your landlord would have to if his own light bulb went. If you send him the receipt for the bulb (50p to £2, depending on whether energy saving), I'm sure they will pay it for an easy life
