Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Owner Review Our system never had a filter fitted, and when we fitted a new boiler in 2013 - the firm changed our system from gravity fed to pressurised but did not install a filter. I had a plumber fit one of these at end of 2018. Quite impressed with it - easy to clean and it is removing debris from the system. My boiler (Ideal Logic System Boiler) also had a new heat exchanger fitted as it had developed a leak (common fault apparently) - so the filter has been a good addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality efficient product This filter was relatively easy to fit, although it was a tight squeeze as my boiler feed and return are 'up' towards the ceiling leaving only just enough room for the filter. The product and supplied fittings are of excellent quality and the filter certainly works, in conjunction with some sentinel X400, it removed loads of black ferrite from my system over a couple of weeks prior to flushing and refilling. It's still 'catching' the odd particle of ferrite, which is a lot better than having it floating round my system. I like the magnet being 'dry' making cleaning the fliter a very easy and clean process (just remove the magnet and jetison about a litre of water out of the valve in the bottom).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work Had new Boiler fitted and with the boiler warranty it specified a magnetic filter. I was scepitical but does seem to do what it says. My system water is clean i always use fernox or equivalent when its refilled from draining. When its drained always water clear and no sludge. With this filter fitted and let system run for 3 days decided to flush filter and yes it had held some sludge and particals.Left for a week and flushed gain and just a lot less sludge this time and only few particals. will now drop to check in a month. Easy way of dosing with additive as takes just less than 1/2 litre. Easier than putting in expansion tank.

Cannot remove magnet

The magnet appears to be stuck in place. Still managed to clean the filter by removing the whole inner section. Any reason the magnet might be stuck - is there an o ring seal where the magnet goes in?
Asked by: Thelearner
try un twisting it or twisting it it is not threaded just a bit stiff. I guess it is stiff to stop it rattling when fitted. It certainly helps for it not to be there when cleaning it out.

Can you connect it up via plastic 22mm pipe? Or does it have to be copper please

Asked by: Delvin
I have already fitted this vortex 300 to a simple plastic pipe system at the side of my boiler with no problems or leaks what so ever. The two big valves accommodate plastic pipe no problems and was easy to fit.

Do I need to have the shut off valves fitted to the pipe as I have very limited space and can it be cleaned out without the shut off valves fitted to the pipe

Asked by: dadillon
If you do not have the valves fitted then you will or should not unscrew the filter bowl unless the system is drained or there are other means of isolating the filter. However you can get a partial clean by switching the heating off remove the magnet then with a basin under the basin open the drain valve.

Where is this best fitted in the system and can I attach to plastic pipe.

Asked by: BS2018diyer

Is the flow direction important?

I have a very limited space to fit on the return pipe to the boiler. The flow in the pipe at this location is in the downwards direction.
