    Nothing.

    It's just a rebranded Adey unit.

    But then they are working on the principle that anyone daft enough to buy a Wooshitter is also likely to spend two or three times the going rate for an identical filter.

    that is a ridiculous price for a filter, only has a 2yr guarantee as well, same as the magnaclean. neither are great quality.

    Magnaclean has a 10 year warranty

    Agree with the above though, the Woofter filter is as overpriced as the rest of their products

    They're crap overpriced lumps of plastic.


    And as for the filters :D.

    Although, I have gone back to the Magnaclean units from Spirovent.

    That's what I was thinking. Basically 2 valves, a plastic pot and a strong magnet. Worcester didn't even invent the thing.

    Thanks for all your replies. I'll get the Magnaclean. Hope the Pro 2 is more reliable than the original.

    Why do you think you need one? If you have a dirty system then there may well be an underlying issue which is introducing air into the system. In this case, a magnet will not do much good. Properly installed systems have been running cleanly for decades without the need for magnetic filters.
