S & H Plumbing and Heating - Power Flushing - Ashford
Power Flushing is the process by which heating systems are forcibly cleansed using water at
high velocity, but low pressure, so that no physical damage is caused to the system.
The objective is to restore systems with circulation and boiler noise problems (caused by
sludge and corrosion deposits) to optimum operation. Power flushing removes these
deposits and the problems that they cause.
Power flushing is also an excellent way to pre-commission clean new heating systems, to
remove excess flux, swarf and other debris, and the grease and oil used to prevent rusting
of components before use.
It is prudent to power flush a heating system immediately before fitting a new boiler to an
existing system to prevent possible future problems. Many systems are found to contain
corrosion and sludge, even if no flow problems have yet shown themselves.
Existing debris is often mobilised by alterations to the system/piping and the increased
efficiency of the new boiler, and may then accumulate in the boiler heat exchanger,
causing noisy operation, reduced efficiency and, in extreme circumstances, failure of the
boiler. The high efficiency and compactness of modern boilers, developed to minimise fuel
costs and pollution, means that they are more susceptible to problems caused by debris in
the system water.
If you think you have boiler or heating problems, or your central heating doesn't work the
way it should, or used to then please call us for a consultation about Power Flushing.
