Power Flushing Service

Power flushing, also known as jet flushing or hard flushing, is the the most effective way to clean a central heating system, and involves circulating a chemical mixed with water around the pipework, radiators and boiler to remove debris and limescale.

Over a period of time sludge builds up in your central heating system, no matter what fuel source you use. This can block pipes and prevent the radiators from distributing heat around the house. Not only will this seriously affect the efficiency of your central heating, but it will lead to higher fuel bills and reduce the lifetime of the system.

When is power flushing necessary?

  • Radiators take a long time to heat up
  • Boiler makes strange sounds when your heating is on
  • Radiators only partially heat up e.g. cold in places
  • Radiators need more frequent venting
  • Black water when radiators bled

What does a power flush involve?

A power flushing unit is connected to your central heating system and water is pumped at a high speed through the system to dislodge any deposits. The process is made more effective by using specialist cleaning chemicals. Loose debris and limescale are removed by the process and replaced with clean water, leaving the system ready to use.

Power flushing does not involve high pressures and therefore is suitable for most domestic central heating systems. The whole process can be carried out with the minimum of disruption, and often without disconnecting radiators or the boiler.
