Power Flushing

Highly experienced, professional and reliable heating engineers

Does your system need a powerflush?

If you find your radiators are struggling to fully heat up or are cold at the bottoms it may be that your central heating system needs to be power flushed.

This is not an unusual problem, as pipes and radiators suffer from sludge build up over time, and there is a simple solution to resolve it. We use magnetic filtration coupled with a top of the range Norstrom powerflushing machine, cleansing agents and a radiator agitator (for severe cases) that will remove sludge quickly and safely, getting your radiators back to full working order in no time.

Don't leave it too late for a powerflush

The sludge in the system is caused by corrosion and corrosion promotes corrosion, The picture on the left is an example of what can happen if it is left too long.

If left for too long sometimes the system may need new sections of pipe, new radiators or a complete new system.

It is possible to flush your radiators yourself by removing them one at a time, taking them outside and connecting your mains water hose pipe to one of the connections on the radiator, Blast the water through until it runs clear then blast through from the opposite side. You can then repeat this process whilst hitting the radiator with a rubber mallet, you will be shocked at what comes out!! This is a very effective way of flushing the radiators but can be very messy and time consuming, it also does not clean any of the system pipework so is not the ideal solution.

We offer competitive prices and cater to all properties from large hotels to single flats,

We power flush as standard when we install new boilers which is a requirement for the extended guarantees that we offer.

Draining and re filling the system is by no way a means of flushing and will remove almost none of the sludge

If you think your system needs a power flush please get in touch and one of our friendly staff will be happy to help you

Frequently Asked Questions

There are various ways of determining this but usually your radiators are hot at the top and cold at the bottom if they contain a lot of sludge.
Because the water cannot circulate efficiently and the water is heating up inside the boiler to a point where it is trying to produce steam this is called kettling
No, this method is very ineffective compared to power flushing
Yes they can but the process takes a little longer and in severe cases some radiators will need to be removed for flushing
We charge a standard rate of £55 plus vat per radiator
