    Had a call out earlier, leak through ceiling from boiler. There was a calmag magnetic filter which had blown completely off the threads which you unscrew to access the magnet. Baffling because id have expected it to be split/damaged.. Screwed it back on,topped pressure ran heating upto temperature and everything seems fine..

    Has anyone had similar problem with magnetic filters?
