We can carry out chemical power flushing without any mess or major upheaval due to our Kamco power flush machine, which enables us to connect to your system central heating pump or radiator. This enables us to flush the whole system without having to remove all of the radiators and create unnecessary inconvenience. We have had the relevant training from Kamco and are members of the ‘Powerflush Association’.
As can be seen from the picture, our Kamco magnetic filter is fitted in line with the power flushing machine, it will then catch and trap any sludge passing through the system, removing any iron oxide (sludge).
Whilst power flushing we add a sludge remover chemical, which dissolves and mobilises the rust, along with any sludge and corrosion deposits which accumulate in central heating systems as a result of gradual decay. Once we have all the sludge removed from your heating system, we flush the system with clean water until each radiator runs clear and the PH levels are correct – we then neutralise your system with the correct dosage of Fernox F1 inhibitor.
All boiler manufacturers now advise that heating systems should be power flushed on new boiler installations. If power flushing is not carried out it could invalidate the boiler warranty.
Depends on the level of rust in your system. If you have never had a power flush done, your system probably needs it.
The only real way to know if you need one done is to have an engineer visit . If you need a professional to have a look / give an opinion on your system and your water quality we offer a free consultation.
– Most boiler insurance schemes will want your system power flushed as standard.
– Manufacturers of your boiler, before they do any work.
– Plumbers that can see it has not been done on your system.
Why? Most central heating problems relate directly or indirectly to sludge or lime scale in your system. Eliminating that would make problems easier to diagnose and prevent future problems from occurring and limiting repetitive future callouts and breakdowns.
