Suffolk Power Flushing
The first aid treatment for Central Heating systems
Is your Central Heating System slow to warm up ?
Are some radiators completely or partially cold?
Do radiators need frequent bleeding?
Is radiator water dirty & discoloured?
with pin hole perforations & leakage?
Are there "kettling" noises from the boiler?
Do you have repeated pump failures?
Why do you need power flushing ?
Boiler manufacturers insist that old heating systems be thoroughly
flushed before installing a new boiler, and may even make a warranty
Only by power flushing can you be sure that a system is really clean
to the standards demanded by modern high efficiency boilers and heat
By using a Clearflow pump, we can cleanse a system to a standard
that exceeds BS7593.
The alternative method of flushing heating systems ,without a pump ,
by using chemical mobilising agents followed several days later by
"repeat drain down" procedures is very labour intensive. It requires
at least 2 visits, doesn't get rid of all debris, and problems often
No matter how good the the flushing agent used, the low rate
as system water trickles out through ordinary drain valves means
that some debris settles back in the system , with the result that
problems return again in short order.
Removing individual radiators, and flushing them with a hose outside
the house , is equally time consuming ,
very messy, and has no effect on deposits in pipe work and elsewhere in
the system .
