When to power flush
New BoilersBoiler manufacturers now insist that heating systems must be power flushed before a new boiler is installed as it may effect boiler guarantee.
Would you put a new engine into an old car? - neither should you attach a new boiler to a potentially damaging heating system.
System MaintenanceIt is also recommended to power flush your central heating system at least every five years even if you have not experienced any of the problems identified above. This can ensure that you maintain system efficiency and do not damage your boiler.
What is power flushing?Power flushing also referred to as 'Jet Flushing' or 'Hard Flushing' is a process by which heating systems are cleansed using water, with the addition of powerful cleansing and mobilising agents. The power flushing unit is attached to the heating circuit in place of the system pump, boiler or radiator and the flushing is done at high velocity, but low pressure, so that no physical damage is caused to the system. In this way the heating circuit can be thoroughly cleansed of lime scale and corrosion debris, which clogs up the system causing damage and inefficiencies if left in place.
