Fernox TF1 Total Filter 22mm
Leaky leaky leaky
It leaked soone after install and soaked the b carpet and chipboard flooring. I fixed it by tightening top cover.
Later the boiler needed fixing and this device had to be removed. British Gas engineer didn't even bother trying to refit it and installed his own solid brass one instead. He says they always ALWAYS leak and he couldn't be asked to fiddle with it or risk water damage after he left. That was his experience of the device...

A Plumber friend of mine recommended this as the best on the market

Fitted several of these devices on both new boiler installs and retrofits on existing boilers.
Having revisited some of them for later servicing, have noted continual collection of sludge and evidence that residual layer of sludgey water in radiators does clear to clean water.
These devices are a must have for all combi boilers and those fitted with coiled stainless steel heat exchangers.
I have had no issues with leaks from seals or valves.

I am a gas safe registered engineer, having installed several magnetic sludge traps from various manufacturers I find the TF1 to be the best all rounder. It is simply technical excellence in a box. It wins hands down in every area for me, it is easy to install, easy to service and brilliant as a dosing pot for inhibitor. This is the one that goes on every boiler that I fit. Highly recommended.
