If you have read any of my other past posts, you may have read my post about the Magnaclean Professional Filter and how to fit one, well since writing that post, Adey who manufacture Magnaclean have since launched the Magnaclean Professional 2 which is even easier to install and fit and can be fitted in less than half an hour, well the actual fitting time is about 10 mins which you will read about further on.
The main difference between the Magnaclean Professional 2 and the original Magnaclean Professional if the fitting valves. They both perform as good as each other and perform the same task, meaning if you already have a Magnaclean Professional one fitted, you DO NOT need to upgrade to the Magnaclean Professional 2, how ever if you have an old Magnaclean Professional, read my post on upgrading your Magnaclean.
The Fitting of the MagnaClean Professional 2 required no soldering of pipes like the original required. The Professional 2 now only requires a pipe cutter and spanner to install it. The revolutionary slip fitting allows the installer to simple remove 150mm of pipe from the flow or return pipe (pref the return pipe) and slip on the fitting and olives and tighten in place. This only takes around 10 mins to perform. How ever before installing you are required to drain down the system and re instate once installed.
To reinstate your system Magnaclean advice using MagnaClean MC1 Protector Fluid which is designed especially for Adey’s MagnaClean for Central Heating Systems, but is suitable for other heating systems. MC1 Protector Fluid is a high performance chemical inhibitor that prevents system corrosion and scale that provides long term system protection.
I have personally fitted one to my own central heating system with ease and have seen a massive improvements in the temperature of my radiators and have removed a large amount of dirt from my system that would have just clogged my boiler and radiators.
The above photos shows the result of fitting a Magnaclean Filter to my central heating system for only 12 hours. In only 12 hours which only 4 hours of which the system was running (as was over night).
