How will a powerflush benefit me
Power flushing is an effective measure to clean your central heating system including,
pipework, radiators and throughout your cylinder and boiler.

There are a number of benefits resulting from a power flush to your system but there are
also a number of reasons of why you should consider a power flush in the first instance.
Power flushing benefits
Total boiler failure
If no other fault exists on your boiler but it still show problems it could over heating due to excessive heat build up caused by sludge and
deposits restricting heat transfer. It must be the noted that if your boiler has failed because of sludge due to not having a power flush your
warranty will be void.
Fuel wastage
In untreated boilers debris in the form of sludge, rust and scale deposits accumulates which restricts the flow of water and ultimately heat from
reaching all parts of the system. This means lost or no heat, you will have to turn up your heating system to compensate which will cost you
more money.
Pump or valve seizure and failure
Black oxide sludge increases shaft and bearing wear which is the most common cause of pump failure. A completely stuck valve could result
in a cold radiator.
Little or no hot water
This could be a result of blocked pipes in the heat exchanger due to an excess build up of sludge.
Cold radiators
If your radiators are cold at the bottom but hot at the top this indicates sludge build up in your system. This is caused by a build up of iron oxide
sludge at the bottom of your radiator (as the sludge is heavier than water)
Frequent venting and air at the top of radiators
Hydrogen, sometimes mistaken for air, is a by-product of electrolytic corrosion.
Sludge and scale
Black Oxide sludge forms continuously in all unprotected central heating systems as a result of corrosion. It will also harden into scale on the
hottest surfaces of a system (i.e the boiler heat exchanger causing it to make knocking and kettling noises). This also prohibits efficient heat
it is advised to get it checked to be safer than sorry.

Benefits of a Powerflush

After your system has been power flushed it will benefit instantly- your system will really appreciate the new lease of life you have just given it!
Internally your system will be running much more efficiently, effectively and cleaner, you may also notice immediate improvement externally
such as reduced boiler noise or more heat in your radiators. It is perhaps the long term benefits that best describe the usefulness of power

  • Efficiency restored back to optimum levels
  • More reliable heating
  • Rust protected central heating system
  • Scale protected central heating system
  • Lower fuel bills
