    Hey Guys,
    I want to install a Magnaclean on my system, however, I'm a little unsure as there is very little space to fit it. I have taken a photo and attached it below to show you what I mean.

    The magnaclean needs to go on the return to the boiler but does it go before or after the pump? Would it be ok to fit using only compression fittings in the configuration below? Also I am right in thinking the the bottom pipes are my return and the top two pipes are my central heating and hot water feeds?

    I have roughly drawn out what I'm thinking below, I would cut the pipe going into the pump and place new pipe (red) going up to and out of the Magnaclean (Yellow), this would give me access to the drains etc.

    What do you think?

    This one is showing the possible location of the magnaclean.

    That's ok, but really the pipes should be clipped, with the weight of the magnaclean and vibrations my cause issues later on.

    Thanks for your reply, there is a wall to the left of the picture, I could run longer pipe, clip it to the wall and then back down. Would that be ok? There would be a few 90 degree turns to get it onto the wall and I would insulate everything as well.
     
  5. A boiler as old as thst ; I wouldn't bother.
