Hi. I'm Dave from DCB Plumbing and Heating. I'm a member of Expert Trades, and today we're going to be doing a review for Tool Talk.
Today, I'm going to be reviewing the Fernox TF1 Omega Filter. It's a magnetic filter that you put on the return pipe to your boiler installation. I'm actually here today on an installation, so I'll tell you about that now.
Today, we're reviewing the Fernox TF1 Omega Filter, 22 mil nuts. This is the one without the external valves that come on either side. In the box, we have a little leaflet to go with it. You have your drain off valve, and then we have the filter itself. With the filter, you've obviously got your one directional which doesn't make any difference, because it can go in any way, whichever way your pipes are going, whichever way it needs to go. None of that is a problem.
One of the great things about this filter is the double O-ring section, which means you've got almost zero chance of any leakage to happen once you get it filled up, once you get it started. You can get everything in the way, and then you've got no problems that you're thinking, oh that might leak. Oh I can't get to that nut, because you know it's going to be pretty sound and secure with the double O-ring.
Full brass construction makes it very sturdy, good unit to get hold of. Everything about it does feel extremely sturdy. Like I say, when you're moving these things, they're quite difficult to move for the simple reason as of it's well made. In the top here, we've got ... This is the removable magnet. Obviously all this stuff will congregate inside around the magnet's sheath inside. You can take the magnet out. Open up your valve, which will be attached to the bottom, and just flush. Any of the magnetic stuff, because the magnetic stuff will fall now the magnet not being in there, will fall to the bottom.
Then, obviously once it's at the bottom, turn it on. Flush it straight through. You've got none of that stuff obviously in there. You can wash it down the drain. You can make sure that you're not keeping it in there. You know and you can physically see in the bucket what's in there. Fantastic filter. Really, really well made. I mean, in fact, it looks brilliant as well being in the chrome finish. Yeah, highly recommend. They're a fantastic filter, does the job as well. That's one of the main things.
It doesn't just look good, it does actually do what it needs to do without leaking, without having to worry about it. It's a fit and forget is what I always call them. You can literally fit it and not have to keep going back and thinking, oh is that going to be leaking? They're not a cheap unit. They're not one of the cheap things you can get from Screwfix. They are a superb unit that you pay a good price for, but I believe it's worth that. I think if you ... I like to fit the best for my customers. If I'm fitting the best, then I'm not going to have any problems. If you're fitting the best, you've got to be fitting these.
Today, the review was on the Fernox TF1 Omega Filter. Fantastic filter, 100% recommend this filter to any heating engineer that's going to be installing any kind of boiler or any installation like this. It is a high quality product made from fantastic materials, made from top quality obviously engineered brass. Really good looking unit, very solid, very sturdy. Definitely a recommendation, 100%.
