Home ยป COMBI BOILER INSTALLATION LEEDS – Baxi Platinum – Omega Filter – Pressfit
Morning guys. Day in the life of a plumber / gas engineer. Today we’re doing a boiler swap, so we’re taking out an old Ideal logic and we’re going to fit a Baxi Platinum boiler. The reason the customer’s gone for the Baxi Platinum is it’s got a 10 year parts and labour warranty, and it proven, proven reliable boiler over the last 10, 12 years. We’re also going to fit a Nest on this, we’re going to do a MagnaCleanse and we’re going to fit a Fernox filter. So yeah, let’s go inside, let’s go and have a look.

INSTALLING A NEW COMBI BOILER – Step By Step – Magnacleanse – Omega Filter – Baxi Boiler. So I’ve got an Ideal logic 30 in here. So the customer’s been having a few issues with it and wants it replacing for something a bit more reliable, but also wants something with a long warranty. So we’re going to fit them a Baxi, a Baxi boiler in here, with 10 year parts and labour warranty.

So we’ve got all our dust sheets down, and then we’re going to take the boiler out now. So I’m just going to put a test on gas, turn the water off and drain it down. So this has got an old style Spirotech on there, so we will be taking that out and we’ll fit them a Fernox Omega filter.

So just show you, we’re using Press Fit today. So this Press Fit in here, this is gas. So if you have a look at it, it says gas. Now as these get a bit older, and even sometimes now, that wears off a bit and it’s a bit hard to see, which if you go to it on an inspection after might be a bit difficult. But when you’re installing, if you have a look inside, the gas ones have a yellow O ring inside them, and the water ones have a black O ring.

So we’ve got our press gun here and then if we get this pipe and then on there, push this pipe in, and we can mark it, make sure it’s gone on. So what you’re supposed to do is supposed to marker that with a pen round there, and then we’ve just got our press gun. And it’s as easy as that. And if you have a look at that, it just crimps it onto fitting and it squashes that, squashes the O ring on.

So we’ve got the new boiler on the wall now. We did a mains flush before we started. We’re now going to connect our MagnaCleanse onto this, and we’re going to do a flush, we’re going to put some F3 chemicals in, and then after we’ve finished we’ll put some inhibitor in as well. So this system did have a Spirotech on, so I’ve just put this Fernox Omega on just for a few seconds, and already it’s got muck in there. So Fernox F3.

So while we’re finishing off now, the system can just flush. We can just spend loads and loads of time making sure the system’s clean because the MagnaCleanse there is doing this work while we have a chance to do other things. So I can finish flue off, screw the flue, I can brick up outside, just while this is doing this. So it just makes it so much easier. And that adaptor from Fernox is absolutely brilliant.

So we’ve been flushing it for a while now with thee MagnaCleanse. If you look at the pipes you can see they look very clear. So we’re going to take this off now. So let’s open these up and see what we’ve caught, if anything. So there you go. Let’s have a look at this one. Wow. Yeah. Just goes to show how good these MagnaCleanses are, very, very good. So we’ve just got this Fernox F1 inhibitor here, and just going to inject it in, into the filter there.

So we’re just doing the finishing touches now. So we’re just going to test it with care, analyse it, make sure the boiler is all safe. Test us high and test us low. And we’re going to fill this benchmark out, and then we’re going to send the warranty off for the customer, so the customer’s got piece of mind that it’s all taken care of for them.

Hope this video was of some use. Thanks for watching.
