Power Flushing Central Heating Systems
It is prudent to power flush a heating system immediately before running a new boiler on an existing system to prevent possible future problems. Many systems are found to contain corrosion and sludge, even if no flow problems have yet shown themselves.
Existing debris is often mobilised by alterations to the system/piping and the increased efficiency of the new boiler, and may then accumulate in the boiler heat exchanger, causing noisy operation, reduced efficiency and, in extreme circumstances, failure of the boiler. The high efficiency and compactness of modern boilers, developed to minimise fuel costs and pollution, means that they are more susceptible to problems caused by debris in the system water.It is important that all sludge is first removed from the system as it could accumulate in the new boiler cause damage and invalidate your warranty.
Does my existing Central Heating System need a Power Flush?
If your central heating system has any of the following symptoms, it probably needs a power flush.
This picture below is a classic example of our powerflushing set up, the machine is connected to the water mains and the, the waste is then taken away into the main drains as seen.Therefore all the mess of the machine/ chemicals and drainage is outside the property.
In the picture below you see that the extra long flow and return powerflush hoses are connected into the main arteries of the system via a window with minimal mess and disruption.
This picture below shows the 'Magnaclean Powerflushing filters' we use inline conected to our Powerflush machine. This gives an extra cleaning element to our work by working together with the powerflushing machine attracting all the debris coming from system clinging to to the powerful magnets as seen in the next picture
The picture below shows one of the 'Magnaclean' magnet cartridges removed with debris from the system clung to it. These two magnets are cleaned every ten minutes during a Powerflush clean.
All This ensures a very thorough Power flush of your system.
