Review for Fernox TF1 Total Filter by S.A.Y Plumbing, Heating and Gas
8th January 2020

By far one of the worst filter I have ever come across. Awful to service as valves and seals leak. Even on replacing seals and following there instructions they leak. I actively take them out if I see one installed now and replace with a better quality filter.

Used to use these a lot but they all leaked after a while. They would need to be tightened constantly so stopped using and went for the magnaclean instead

I have tried these filters in the past and everyone has leaked it different places. I wouldn’t buy one ever again and the price is not cheap either. Not good for the money.

5th September 2019

I used to fit these filters when they first came out hoping that they would be better than magnaclean. At the time magnaclean filters had a problem with the screw cap access to the magnet, the cap over time distorted. Low and behold the same thing happened to the tf1 after a year and also the filters leaks from adjustable base. Adey (magnaclean) have addressed the issue with the cap. I would highly recommend the magnaclean Pro 2, great bit of kit and worth the cost.

Now these are not as good as other brands. Most show signs of leaking or leakage and most of you even look at them start to leak. Would not recommend

Unfortunately they have just not got this filter right. Leaks when cleaned from the top and fernox do not recommend this now, without fitting a new service kit after... more hassle than it’s worth. Fernox have great products but unfortunately their system filter is not one of them

Following on from some other reviews they can move about a bit when fitting and servicing, so you need to re tighten the joints as they can leak, saying that it’s s good product as it filters a lot of sludge from the system, and is easy to install.

Good old leaky tf1, I thought the magnaclean was bad, fair enough it picks up ok, but still not the best, it's big and ugly and leaks from everywhere, the plastic cap/ISO lever is always worn so you have to use grips, I wouldn't buy or sell one of these, maybe the omega, for now I will stick to spirotrap with spirovent on new installs and the magnaclean on upgrade work, only because they really pick up the sludge and muck.
