Over time the water within your central heating system will react with the inside of your steel radiators. The reaction consists of dissolved rust (iron oxide) which is dark/black/reddish in colour and of a ‘gummy’ consistency. Not ideal as it restricts circulation of water round the system causing a drop in the efficiency and performance of your central heating. The debris suspended must be controlled/captured to avoid damage to the circulation pump or the two/three-way motorised valves (or other moving parts).
What are the indicators: Cold spots in the radiators - middle - and bottom - with some radiators not heating at all?
Remedy: The Installation of a magnetic system filter. Why, what does it do?
It is designed to ‘grab’ any magnetic debris such as corroded iron and steel suspended within the system removing them from circulation and preventing them from permeating your boiler!
However, a system can be so ‘gummed’ up it requires a Power Flush, prior to installing the system filter.
What is a Power Flush? It is a cleaning operation which removes dirt, sludge and particulates that have accumulated in your system. Left untreated they can cause blockages etc and reduce heat output even causing a breakdown.
Whenever Serviceteam Ltd installs a new gas boiler we always recommend 1. a Power Flush and 2. the installation of a system filter, to protect the system for the foreseeable future. We offer a fixed price to supply and install a Magnaclean Professional 22mm Magnetic System Filter (or similar). Designed to arrest sludge before it does any damage to your system. They are quick to fit and can be easily maintained during an annual boiler service. .
If you are experiencing any of the above we would like to hear from you, either by using our online booking form or by calling us to discuss any issue with a team member who will happily answer any questions you may have. Please read our reviews on our Checkatrade or Which? Platforms before calling.

What is a Magnaclean (trade name)?
It is an ‘add on’ to a central heating system that connects to the boilers pipework. Its job is to hoover up any debris, sludge or rust that is circulating the system before it builds to a point where the efficiency of heating system is affected.
The Magnaclean Professional 22mm Magnetic System Filter is a decent benchmark for reliability within the plumbing fraternity. A Magnaclean Professional system filter is capable of removing 100% iron oxide contamination from the system. Serviceteam Ltd aims to provide you with the best products to solve a problem and this filter seems to tick all the boxes. This particular filter is an industry standard and is often the first port of call by installers to protect a new or existing system against potential damage.
Some of the benefits are as follows:

What you get?
We offer our services all across London 24/7 with coverage outside Greater London. Call to enquire if we cover your postcode.
Q: Can a magnetic filter be added to my existing system?
A: Depends on where and how your boiler is installed. Usually, a magnetic system filter is recommended at the time of installation, but you can also install one to an existing system. Our Gas-safe engineers will do an on-site inspection and issue you a quote for the installation.
Q: Do Magnetic System Filters require maintenance?
A: Yes. Since the filter regularly captures dirt, it needs proper cleaning to keep working efficiently. Our engineer can be requested to do this while carrying out your annual boiler service (subject to conditions). A magnetic filter should be working optimally in order to protect your system!

Serviceteam completes so many jobs during a year that we can often provide you with a fixed price for the works without attending Other jobs require am enquiry to be raised, so we can compile a quotation. Any photos provided will help us to assess requirements. If your project is large or complex, we will assign one of our qualified engineers to visit and prepare a detailed quotation. Alternatively, you can select serviceteam’s Pay by Time option, certainly if you have an emergency or a “to do” list made up of one or several minor jobs. When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorization before proceeding.
Enquiries can be logged through our website, email, WhatsApp or by calling 020 3538 7067.

Do I need to provide parking?

The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
