Heating Systems ~ Power Flushing

Power Flushing is also often referred to as 'Jet Flushing' or 'Hard Flushing' in central heating circles and all mean essentially the same thing i.e. forcing water at high velocity, but at low pressure through a hot water heating system, in order to throughly cleanse and remove sludge accumulated over many years. If your heating system has any of the symptoms listed below, then it may well need powerflushing:

  • Botton of radiators are cold to the touch
  • Radiators are cold all over
  • Frequent bleeding needed
  • Boiler cutting out early on heating cycle
  • Little hot water or low hot water pressure
  • Boiler bangs and thuds, noisy pipes

Powerflushing is also used in before commissioning a new central heating system to ensure that no swarf, grease or flux is left in the system before it's started up.

Using only qualified powerflushing plumbers  you're safe in the knowledge that you're in professional hands.

How Does It Work?
The power flushing pump is quickly connected to the heating system, using the most suitable method depending on the design of the heating system. Setting up normally only takes a few minutes.

The powerful pump is started which dislodges and loosens deposits and corrosion normally left untouched by traditional heating system cleaning methods. Once the corrosion and sludge deposits are loose and mobile, clean fresh water is forced around and through the heating system, pushing the dirty water out to waste.

During the cleaning process, radiators are flushed individually, without removing or disconnecting them from the system. By this method each radiator is cleaned separately and at the end of the flushing process, the system contains fresh clean water. The result is a fully optimised heating system with no mess to clear up afterwards.

Starting up the heating system again following a full flushing operation takes only a few minutes. However, it should noted that power flushing will not improve the design nor repair mechanical faults within the system. Having said that, power flushing will often improve the operation of a badly designed or poorly installed central heating system.
