What is a Power Flush?
A Power Flush is a cleansing process which aims to remove deposits of sludge, rust and any other debris from your central heating system. If left, these contaminants can seriously affect the efficiency of a heating system and in severe cases, a Power Flush is the only option available.
Signs that you might need a Power Flush:
- Heating system taking longer than usual to heat up
- Cold spots in the radiators
- Radiators that aren’t working
- Boiler cutting in and out as well as getting hot too quickly
- Boiler making kittling noises
- Sludge in feed and expansion tank
- Discoloured water when bleeding the radiators
- Heavy debris when cleaning the heating filter
So how does a Power Flush work?
- -Power Flush equipment connects to your central heating and cleans the whole system without having to take off all the radiators.
- Power Flush cleaner is added to the system water and starts to loosen the rust.
- The heating is turned on and radiator surfaces are checked for cold spots.
- Flushing water through each radiator and vibrating cold spots allows the sludge to rapidly loosen.
- The sludge flows from the radiator and is collected.
- Radiators and pipe work are flushed until water samples are clean and pH neutral.
- Inhibitor fluid is added at the end of the process to help prevent future build-up of future contamination.
