Power flushing Central Heating Systems
Why Power Flushing is a good idea Power flushing is designed and carried out by plumbing and heating engineers. This process involves removing and flushing through all the unwanted waste materials that have built up over time within your central heating system, like sludge, rust and dirty water, out of your boiler, pipes and radiators.
If this unwanted debris is not removed from your heating system on a say 5-6 year basis, it just accumulates and can cause more major problems if left unattended. As the sludge and debris begin to clog up your central heating it can affect things like radiator valve and heating control servo valve damage, boiler problems, drop in heat or uneven temperature of your radiators.
Need a Power Flush? Signs to look for
Our Power flushing Process
We have a powerful machine at our disposal that is called a pumping station. It is employed to remove all the sludge and dirty water that is currently clogging your heating system, and replace it with clean water. We may introduce a chemical to the system beforehand any of our equipment is connected or the process begins. This can help breakdown the unwanted materials presently blocking your pipes and radiators.
What power flushing actually does
Once we have set up our power flush equipment our first job is to flush the whole system through in both directions.
Any sections that are deemed troublesome will be tackled separately until the water runs clear and we are happy.
Usually, on older systems any badly contaminated radiators may be agitated by the use of vibration. Tough pads are attached to a hammer drill set for vibrating only (no circular motion) This will loosen the unwanted tough deposits inside the radiators, ready to be flushed out.
After the initial clearing out and flushing, a chemical neutraliser will be added and washed right through the system. The engineer will then carry out a PH balance test to make sure that the system is not too acidic. As we do not want too much acid as this can cause internal corrosion, something we don't want.
The final part of the flushing service is adding our special inhibitor fluid to the central heating system. This process and additive protects all the internal workings and prevents the sludge and unwanted debris clogging up your system again.
Depending on the size of your property, how many radiators you have and the condition that it’s currently in, the process can take anything up to a day.
Benefits of our Power Flushing Service
Power Flushing before new Boiler
If you are purchasing a new boiler that will run your existing network of pipes and radiators, it is good practice to perform the power flushing service prior to the boiler being installed. This makes good sense as it will ensure that you are not contaminating the newly installed boiler workings with all the existing and unwanted sludge, debris and dirty water, that is present in the old pipework and radiators.
Power Flushing Cost
I think that it’s important to point out that your central heating system needs to work as efficiently as possible for you to get the full benefits. Maybe you think that power flushing is a pointless and expensive practice. I assure you that this is not the case as you will get a good return on your money afterwards with a reduction in heating bills, this will soon help you recover your costs and you will have a system that works as it should.
