Power flushingis a technique used to clear sludge from central heating system pipes, radiators, coils and heat exchangers. These are areas where scale and corrosion can collect, the symptoms are usually: Cold spots on radiators, even after bleeding. What is Power flushing?
Power flushing is done under high flow rates, over high pressure. High flow rates move the sludge so it can be filtered out. Power flushing is done at high pressure
If a part is broken and the system or boiler is not working because of that, cleaning the central heating does not fix that part. Even though the sludge might have caused it to break and will probably break the new part if it is not removed by power flushing. Most of our members are qualified to do both; a power flush and replace parts. Power flushing fixes broken parts
Power flushing removes a large percentage of sludge / rust, but not all of it. It is not possible to remove all the sludge from a system especially older systems. Power flushing removes all the sludge from a system
The pressure in your system will drop if there is a leak of some kind. Although sludge and debris can caused this leaking, power flushing the system cannot seal the leak. The leak needs to be fixed to stop pressure loss. Our members also do normal plumbing and can quote for fixing the leak / power flushing the system. Power flushing can stop your system from losing pressure
Yes, it will dramatically slow down the formation of new sludge. However the sludge already in the system is still there and will be there until removed. Inhibitor will drop in concentration over time as it dilutes or evaporate, sludge will start forming faster as this happens. You have to top it up from time to time. We can test for inhibitor concentration in central heating water, if you post us a water sample. Please note that adding inhibitor into a system filled with sludge will actually harden the sludge. Adding inhibitor to my system will stop sludge forming
