Power Flushing

Why do i need a Power Flush?

Power Flushing is usually required either when a new appliance is installed to an existing heavily contaminated system or when problems occur due to restricted flow and failure of your heating system.

This is a result of pipework becoming heavily sludged over time and ultimatly restricting flow of water around your heating system, this not only causes your boiler and components to work harder, it increases the risk of failure and expensive repair bills.

This not only makes your system inefficient for running costs but decreases the life expectancy of your appliance.

Possible Causes

  • Sludge in the heating system

  • Heating systems that havent been chemically treated

  • Breakdown of components

  • Corroding Products such as radiators and pipework

  • Poorly Designed system

Symptoms

  • Banging of the heating system when in operation

  • Cold Spots within Radiators

  • Noisy Boiler

  • Leaking Components

What a Power Flush Does

Using a power flush machine is essentially connecting a huge pump to your heating system. A radiator or your existing central heating pump would be removed and the power flush machine connected to bridge the gap. The machine is then filled with water and flushing chemicals and turned on to pump the mixture around the central heating system at a high pressure for a duration of time to clear the system of loose debris and sludge. Intermittently the reservoir will be emptied and refilled with clean water and chemicals, this will be repeated until the system is clean. Once adequate time has elapsed the processed would be stopped and the system re-filled with corrosion inhibitor.

Having your system power flushed will not remedy or resolve any faults that have developed from either mechanical failure or damage already done to the heating system and or boiler.
