Maintenance and Repair

Powerflushing

Power flushing is a process whereby heating systems are forcibly cleansed using water at high velocity, but low pressure, typically with the age of cleaning chemicals.

The idea of power flushing is to restore heating systems to optimum operation. Over time, depending on their age, usage and type, heating systems get clogged up with sludge, scale and other debris. This reduces their efficiency and effectiveness, ultimately resulting in higher fuel bills and damage to the heating system.

Symptoms of a clogged up system are the following:

Power flushing is it needed?
  • Noisy Boiler - particularly when working hard

  • Partially cold radiators

  • Radiators need bleeding frequently

  • Higher fuel bills

Power flushing how it works
  • The power flushing pump is simply connected into the heating system. The powerful flow and cleansing chemicals will dislodge and mobilise deposits and corrosion.
  • At the end of the flushing process, the system contains fresh clean water and reinstatement of the system to normal operation only takes a few minutes.
  • Fresh clean water is forced through the heating system, pushing the contaminated water to the waste pipe. During the flushing process radiators are individually flushed.
  • Please note: System flushing will not remedy design or mechanical faults, which should be rectified, but in many cases it will cure the problems caused by these.
