...can be death to a heating system. Read more:
You don’t have to be a heating engineer to be aware of just how many ‘magnetic’ heating
filters are available now. It seems to be that with every month that passes, another
appears! However, very many of them are let down by the fact that they just aren’t
up to the job of keeping a central heating system clean. Many of them have tiny magnets!
Manufacturers also tend to make these devices from plastic...We don’t! We think that
ANY device dealing with very hot water, under pressure, should be made from metal.
The principle of magnetic filters is very simple. Radiators that are part of a typical
central heating system are steel. Add water, some air, and you have the perfect conditions
This ‘rust’ becomes black in colour (magnetite), and is VERY damaging to a heating
system. It clogs radiator valves, pumps, pipework, and especially the boiler’s heat
exchanger. It clings to pipe corners and fittings and, left unchecked, can eventually
bring a heating system to fail. Powerflushing can only do half the job at the best
of times, so it’s imperative to prevent it happening, rather than try and clean a
system of magnetite.
As rust is magnetic, all that needs to be done is to install a strong magnet in the
waterline. The magnet will filter out the particles and collect them. But when we
looked at manufacturing such a device, we were astounded at the quality of some of
those available. Often cheap plastic, with cheap valves. And then there’s the issue
of whether they can actually do the job. We have seen ‘magnetic filters’ with extremely
small magnets, and some of them not even neodymium magnets! We think that if the
ad says ‘compact’...then that tells you everything!
So we set out to manufacture a magnetic filter that was man enough, and strong enough.
It had to be metal construction, but it also had to have a BIG magnet capable of
performing. The BoilerGuard eco was the result...
The BoilerGuard uses a N52-grade, rare-earth, neodymium magnetic rod
...similar products do not!
The BoilerGuard truly is all-metal construction
...similar products can be cheap plastic!
The BoilerGuard is guaranteed for 25 years
...similar products might come with a 2-year guarantee!
Can the BoilerGuard be fitted on larger systems than typical?
Yes, although it is standard in 22mm, two units fitted in parallel will provide protection
for 35mm systems. We also offer a bespoke-manufacturing service to install a BoilerGuard
on large-bore systems - units can be made to your specification. Email us, and we’ll
have a chat about your requirements.
Are isolating valves included in the box?
Yes, full bore, 22mm, high-quality valves.
Should I fit the BoilerGuard horizontal or vertical?
We always suggest vertical. However, it CAN be fitted horizontal (tails up) if required.
Is the BoilerGuard really ‘all-metal’?
Yes, totally. It will withstand extraordinary system temperatures and pressures...where
others might fail.
Is it tamper-proof?
Yes, unlike similar products to ours, the BoilerGuard’s magnetic-rod cap can only
be removed using two spanners. There is nothing for some inquisitive child to press
and cause a system leak!
How is it sealed?
The BoilerGuard uses a simple, everyday, 28mm compression cap. So NO special seals
are required - nothing to leak!
Is the magnetic rod really N52 neodymium?
Yes, unlike many others we have seen, we manufacture a ‘magnetube’ (a 22mm, highly
magnetised copper tube) of N52-class neodymium magnets - the highest grade neodymium
on Earth - for maximum strength!
Can it be fitted straight from the box?
Yes, you have to install the valves (either on the tails or on the pipework), but
the BoilerGuard comes ready assembled.
What are the dimensions?
It is 210mm in length by 67mm in width.
Where should I install it?
Always on the return pipe if possible.
What’s this about an amazing guarantee?
We guarantee the structural integrity of our products for 25 years - meaning that
no brazed joint or seal will leak. Everything will stay together as it was the day
it was made. This is what sets our products apart from others. We are so sure of
the quality of our products, that we are able to do this. Similar manufacturers are
evidently unsure of the integrity of their product(s), so give, what we would call,
an inadequate guarantee.
Is the BoilerGuard a British product?
Yes, we're proud to say it is. It is a quality product hand-made in England, not
China - like so many similar units. We even manufacture the core magnetic rods, by
Why don’t you sell the BoilerGuard in plumbing merchants?
Because by the time they have added their mark-up charge, it would make it too expensive.
You get it the cheapest possible by buying direct from us.
Does the BoilerGuard filter non-magnetic particles?
No, there is no need in the vast majority of cases. If you require a non-magnetic
filter in addition to the BoilerGuard then install a Y strainer, sized for your needs.
How do I clean it?
Turn the valves off, place a small bowl under the bottle and remove the 28mm cap.
The magnetube will slide out - wiping most of the magnetite-sludge from the magnetube
in the process. Wipe the remainder with a cloth. Now remove the bottle and wash out
How do I order one?

get straight back to you.
So many engineering products are made in China now...but not ours! Manufacturers
do this because labour costs are very low there, but then so is quality. We’ve seen
products with ‘British’ advertised on them, only to discover that the product was
designed in Britain, by a British company, but then made in China from Chinese components!
We are a British business. But we go much further than that - we actually make our
products here; we are supporting British manufacturing and British jobs. We will
go on doing that because we are sincere about quality - we insist on it ourselves.
Quality ensures reliability. We could easily make our products from plastic - it
would make them much cheaper. But quality would suffer, and so would reliability.
We hope that you’re looking for the best product, not the cheapest.
