Central Heating Magnetic Filter Location Advice

Postby Flick3k » Sun Dec 17, 2017 10:26 am

Hi everyone,

I’m looking for some clarification on the best location for a central heating magnetic filter please.

I have a unvented sealed system with a Potterton heat only boiler mounted in a kitchen cupboard. I can access the flow and return pipes before they disappear into the wall cavity but they’re quite tight against the wall and there isn’t a great deal of pipework to play with. I was hoping in this case I could install the filter in the airing cupboard instead.
All of my central heating pipework to the radiators is the pvc tubing type (new build house) and the point where the tubing rejoins the copper return pipe is under the floor in the airing cupboard somewhere. I have access to the return pipe from the hot water cylinder - would installing the filter here have the same effect?
Or would I be best trying to squeeze a compact filter in above the boiler?

Thanks in advance!
