Power Flushing

Powerflushing has evolved from years of heating engineers trying to find the best way of unblocking pipework and radiators. For a long time the best way to try and remove sludge was to use a hose pipe and literally try to rinse out the pipes and radiators. As water will always flow the easiest path it was often a waste of time. We use the Magnacleanse method of flushing radiators which has proved to be the best way to clean even stubborn systems.

Why Do I Need a Powerflush

Many homes have had central heating fitted for decades. Over this time boilers have been replaced, moved, adapted and upgraded. Until recent flushing technology was developed, it was difficult to remove the years of dirt and sludge in the system. Now we use the best system on the market to restore radiators and protect new boilers.

Having a Powerflush can rectify:

  • Radiators not heating up
  • Cold spots on radiators.
  • Poor hot water on combi boilers due to sludge build up in the heat exchanger.
  • Excessive gas bill caused by inefficient heating.

We use the Industry Leading MagnaClense Method

We now use the MagnaClense system to flush. Various videos of how this system works can be found on YouTube with clearly impressive resutls. This works by adding 2 powerful magnets just before the central heating water returns into the boiler. The system is so effective you can literally see black water entering the filters and clear water running out. Once the hose coming out stops running clear. it’s time to clean the magnets. This is done repeatedly until the system is as clear as possible.

 

A Cleaning chemical is then added to the system to help loosen up the sludge. Once added it is now time to start “agitating” the radiators. All of the radiators are turned off except for the first radiator to be cleaned. The agitator is a blunt attachment that is added to the end of a drill that is set to impact rather than spin. The agitator is used to knock off the sludge that is stuck to the inside of the radiators. Any parts of the radiator that are cold are given attention until the whole radiator is hot and clear of blockages. Each radiator is done until they are all warm. The filter will be cleaned several times to ensure all the sludge is completely removed. While the radiators are being cleaned, the chemical is breaking down any sludge in the pipes or cylinder.
