Power Flushing

Radiator being installed

Power flushing is recommended to keep your heating system running efficiently.

Rust occurs in all central heating systems producing a black (iron oxide) sludge and, in hard water areas, lime scale builds up in combination boilers.

A power flush can return your system to full efficiency keeping your radiators hot and fuel costs down.

Power Flushing forcibly cleans heating systems using water at high velocity, but low pressure, so that no physical damage is caused to the system.  The process is even more effective with the addition of powerful cleansing and mobilising agents. The aim is to restore systems with circulation and boiler noise problems (caused by sludge and corrosion deposits) to optimum operation.  Power flushing removes these deposits and the problems that they cause.

It is wise to power flush a heating system immediately before fitting a new boiler to an existing system to prevent possible future problems.  Many systems are found to contain corrosion and sludge, even if no flow problems have yet shown themselves.
