Hi,

I'd like to fit a magnaclean filter on the boiler return pipe. The pipe has more than one coat of gloss paint on it however (see photo). What's the easiest AND safest way you'd recommend to remove the paint?

I've seen Nitromor's suggested several times in threads, but the product seems to have lots of bad reviews online (ie it's not very effective). I do have a heat gun but am worried about the soldered elbow joint close by (and maybe even the compression joint?)

I started of trying to scrape the paint off with a putty knife/scraper but was worried about applying too much force and damaging the pipe!

Your suggestions would be much appreciated.

PS: I know some of you aren't so keen on these filters, but they do no harm (unless they leak!) and do give some level of protection :)

I just use a Stanley knife and scrape it off, then emery paper, then wire wool.
