    Hi Forum,

    I've had a Worcester-Bosch 35CDi fitted in 2005, annual serviced and been working fine, with one breakdown recently, when the fan/pump was replaced.

    Since it was installed no-one has mentioned having a filter fitted, not even the WB engineers doing the annual servicing.

    I was thinking to have someone come into the house; probably Spring time and give everything a once over, full clean, rebalancing, inhibitors, etc.

    I was wondering if it was worth having a Magnetic Filter retrofitted to the system. Any thoughts?

    Regards
    Mark

    Good idea after giving the system a power flush fitting one will trap any bits and stop the boiler from getting blocked but it's a shame one wasn't fitted on installation. Bob

    I would wait and see what the system water is like. Well designed, installed and treated heating systems work very well for decades without the need for filters.
