    Hi All
    Looking for feedback/sugestions on what to use on the glycol side of my heat exchanger.I have 1 1/4 copper pipe manifold.I was planing to run a sidestream filter,and was wondering if that would be enough ?
    Or should i also have a strainer?
    I did install a strainer on my water side.
    Thanks Thomas

    i just put a spirotherm dirt trap on my return line from my house out to the wood boiler. No pressure drop and you wouldn't believe the crud it pulls out of the system, even after the system was flushed. check with PEX Supply
