Power Flushing Worksop

Power flushing is sometimes referred to as Jet Flushing or Hard Flushing. The aim of power flushing is to restore your central heating system to optimum operation. Power flushing removes sludge and corrosion deposits that might be causing your boiler to make noise or prevent water circulating correctly.

If you are having a new boiler fitted, it is advisable to have your central heating system flushed to remove corrosion deposits and sludge. Often such contaminants are found in heating systems without any evidence of them being present. These deposits can be mobilised when alterations are made to the heating system and find their way into the new boiler heat exchanger, causing noisy operation, reduced efficiency and, in extreme circumstances, failure of the boiler.

The images below show a central heating system recently power flushed. The picture to the left is the before picture showing the clean magnets. The picture to the right shows a collection of black iron which are the particles that have been removed during the flushing process.

The equipment that we use removes virtually all of the suspended black iron oxide particles in one power flush leaving your central heating system free from potential damaging metallic particles. Once these particles have been removed from your central heating system, it may be worth considering installing a central heating filter, which can prevent future circulation of metallic particles.

Power Flushing Process

Power Flushing Process

  • Step 1 - Chemicals are added to the system to loosen up the sludge within the heating system.
  • Step 2 - Each radiator is flushed in turn using a radiator agitator to vibrate the suspended debris within the system. There is no need for physical removal of each radiator.
  • Step 3 - Frequent flow reversals during flushing to disturb the maximum amount of sludge.
  • Step 4 - Boiler, radiators and all pipework gets flushed until water runs clear.
  • Step 5 - Inhibitor chemicals are added to the system to prevent future sludge build up.
  • Step 6 - The central heating system is re-balanced radiator by radiator.
