How does power flushing work?
The process begins with one of our tradesmen inspecting your property’s heating system to determine its condition. This inspection is performed to ensure that the heating system can be power flushed safely.
They will then connect a pump to the heating system. This pump will be used to push special chemicals through the boiler, pipes, and radiators. These chemicals will remove sludge, limescale, and rust from the system. They chemical solution also contains a corrosion inhibitor which will protect your heating system from rust.
This process removes any sludge from radiators that may be preventing them from working correctly. Removing radiator sludge will restore their heating capacity and improve their reliability. Each radiator will get hot faster and stay hot. The power flush will also cleans boiler parts, helping them function correctly. This includes valves, pipes, and other important heating components.
The contaminated water produced by the power flush will be collected and disposed of. Our tradesman may also use tools to dislodge any stubborn blockages in the heating system. Once the process has been completed, they will test the operation of the heating system and measure its temperature at various locations. The temperature readings will be compared to results prior to the power flush.
Performing a power flush can take anywhere between 5 to 10 hours. The duration is based upon the condition of your central heating system and the size of the installation.
If there are any components which are heavily damaged, they may need to be replaced. Our qualified tradesmen will be able to identify any components which are too deteriorated to continue being used.
We Do Plumbing Ltd always uses Kamco machine power flushing equipment and chemicals for our power flushing jobs. Kamco is the leading provider of power flushing equipment and chemicals.
Our team can also install or replace MagnaClean boiler filters. They are powerful magnetic filters that can trap metal produced by the boiler corrosion — collecting it before it can accumulate in other parts of the boiler.
Signs that your boiler might need a power flush
There are a few warning signs that indicate a central heating system may have blockages or is filled with a lot of gunk. They include:
- Old radiators not getting fully hot
If some radiators have cold spots or cannot reach their full temperature, it may be because they contain gunk. You might also find that the pipes going to the radiator are hot, but the radiator itself is cold. A power flush will remove these contaminants and help your radiators function correctly again.
- Radiators have leaks
Radiators that contain gunk will often develop small leaks.
- Poor performing boiler
If your boiler often shuts down and needs to be restarted, it is a sign that the system is packed with sludge and needs to be cleaned. Your boiler might also become very noisey and take a long time to heat up.
- Cloudy tap water
If the water from the boiler is cloudy it means there is a lot of limescale in the system. It may also display other colours if there is a lot of rust and debris in the system. In severe cases, you may find that you cannot bleed water from your radiators because they are so packed full of sludge.
What are the benefits of power flushing?
If your central heating system contains a lot of gunk, power flushing can dramatically improve its performance. You will experience:
- Improved energy efficiency
- Radiators will get hotter quicker
- The entire heating system will be quieter
- Hot water temperatures will be higher
- The system will be more reliable
- The system will last longer
