Signs You May Need a Power flush
Powerflushing is a cleansing process that aims to remove deposits of sludge, rust, and any other debris from your central heating system.
How does a power flush work?
Our engineer will explain everything that will happen from start to finish and you will have the opportunity to answer any questions that you have prior to the work commencing. Our engineer at MK City Plumbing & Heating will connect a pump to your central heating system.
If it’s a combi it will be connected at the pump head but if it’s a system boiler it will be connected at the circulation pump. This pump will push special chemicals through the pipes, boiler and radiators.
This includes a chemical that will remove sludge and rust, a descaler to remove limescale and corrosion inhibitor to help prevent future rust from forming. The engineer will collect and dispose of any contaminated water, debris, or particles that they remove from the system.
Our engineer may also use special tools on the exterior of the radiator to dislodge stubborn blockages. They should be able to measure the temperature of your radiators before they have started work and then show you the improvement after the Powerflush.
The whole process can last anything from 6 – 10 hours depending on the number of radiators in your home, the age of the system and the severity of the sludge in the system. The engineer may find more problems than originally anticipated such as needing new parts to replace those that have been damaged beyond repair. Most Power flush jobs can be completed in one day but some of the more severe cases may require longer.
A qualified engineer will be able to perform repairs, replacements and carry out a Power flush.
