What is power flushing?
What is power flushing? What does it do? How do I know if I need one? Can't I just drain the system? I'll take the radiator off,flush it with the hose?
These are all some of the questions we are always asked about power flushing. Boiler manufacturers require that a heating system is cleaned prior to installing a new boiler to validate the warranty on the boiler. But it's not just when a new boiler is installed that some heating systems require a system flush.
Over time your heating system builds up layers of sludge and magnatite, the result
of this can be radiators not getting warm all over, this is something you may have
noticed for yourself? If you have noticed that you have cold spots at the bottom of
some of your radiators this is a good sign of sludge build up.
Of course we cant always see or notice where sludge and magnetite builds up, your
heating system will have many meters of pipework that could be blocked or restricted
by this build up of sludge & magnetite. these restrictions are making your system less efficient to run.
A power flush will remove the sludge & magetite from both the radiators & the
pipework, restoreing the effiencey of you heating system and reducing you fuel bills.
How does the power flush work? It work by connecting the power flush machine on to your heating system, either by removing the circulating pump and conneting from there or by the removal of a radiator to connect to the heating system. the power flush machine will pump
circulating water around you system, Chemicals are added to aid in the breakdown of the sludge & magnetite.
Each radiator on the system gets flushed individually, while the the other closed off. The radiators
are agitated to dislodge and move debris with vibration, the removed sludge & Magnetite is
collected in the power flush machine untill pumped out down a drain. the system is the neutralised
so the Ph levels are the same as your incoming water.
