    Hi everyone. I'm hoping somebody will be able to offer some advice. I've recently moved home and above the boiler is a Inta Klean triple action magnetic vortex filtration system installed. Doing a bit of research I now understand what this gizmo does but it seems to clean it the engineer needs to unscrew the bottom of it. The problem in my house is that the way it's been installed means you wouldn't be able to unscrew it, as the bottom has been wedged between the boiler and a kitchen cabinet. Is it possible to remove it to clean in a different manner than the usual?

    Any help appreciated .

    Many thanks.

    Yes Isolate it and remove it with a couple of towels to soak up

    Thanks Riley for the quick response, I did wonder that but seemed almost too easy! Is that just by loosening the nuts above and below the valves?

    Yep obviously make sure you turn off the butterfly isolations. Might be prudent to replace the washers when you put it back. Obviously keep in mind when you undo the bottom nut quite a lot of the water will try and escape the filter. just Be warned. It will stop though. If you can get the lid off in situ then a wet vac would be the cleanest way to get the water out before removing the filter
