    An interesting find. Would be keen to know if Fernox or Adey are planning a new or revamped filter, or if this one, being the newest, is the one to get.

    I've always felt that the spirotech filters are the best made but the magnaclean was best at removing debris from the system. This could be the turning point for me swapping to spirotech.

    its great to see a properly engineered product getting acceptance in the UK...given our engineering standards thats quite an achievement..

    a great product just go better, and not a bit of plastic in sight....brilliant!

    I love the all-brass manufacture. I wonder where the poles of the magnetic sleeve are?

    I see it has an arrow on it pointing up, can you change it if the flow is downwards?

    Will be interesting to see how dramatic it is at capturing black sludge, the Magnaclean is spectacular, but the shoddy GRP does tend to leak after a while.

    The original Magnaclean removes magnetite effectively, but only removes non-magnetic debris efficiently. The new Magnaclean Micro and the new retro-fit adaptor for the Magnaclean Pro are better at catching non-magnetic debris. Both sorts of debris are caught effectively. :?: :?:

    You try explaining the difference to a customer. I wish Adey would explain it to me!!

    I've never though the old magnaclean was any good at trapping non-magnetic particles, apart from any that might fall into the bottom of the canister by chance. Anyway, it leaks.

    I always used to fit Magnaboosters. All of the Spiro filters are of a very high build quality, and were easy to fit to pipework in any orientation.

    A couple of years ago, I saw a comparison test between Magnacleans, Fernox TF1s and Magnaboosters. The test results showed that the Magnabooster captured much less debris than the Magnaclean, which was best, and the TF1 which was a close second.

    Nothing would compel me to change to Magnacleans, so I now go for the second best - TF1s.

    That ****e GRP cost half a replacement costs of a new screed floor and Lino.

    Never will fit their stuff again ever again

    Fernox TF1 is far more robust and the brass construction of Spirovents products is first class

    Anyone have any idea what the additional fitting on the pipe below the filter is?
