Do I need to hire a local professional 'power flushing engineer'?

A power flush cleans the central heating system, removing iron oxide (rust debris) from the pipework leading through the boiler to the radiators, towel rails and underfloor heating. Common symptoms of needing a powerflush are;

  • radiators cold at the top from air pockets
  • radiators cold at the bottom from sludge deposits
  • boiler cutting out from poor circulating as water cannot pump around the system quick enough against the debris
  • boiler kettling, making noises from the debris in the heat exchanger
  • pipes are cold not allowing water to flow through as blocked with debris

What do power flushing engineers near you do?

A powerflusher will attach a powerful magnet filter to the pipe work system by removing the circulatory pump or a radiator. The rust debris comes out from the radiators and is completely filtered by the magnet. The filtered system water continues into a Powerflush machine where cleaning chemicals are added.

The chemicals then go into the boiler where they are heated which means they are more effective in breaking down debris. Any cold spots found on radiator surfaces are vibrated until a uniform surface temperature is recorded all over. Once this is achieved the radiator valves are turned off so that the hot cleaning chemical can soak surface rust and then the next radiator is worked on.

Once all radiators, hot water coils and feed tanks etc have been checked and cleaned, the powerflush machine is filled with clean water and radiators are purged one by one. The powerflusher will ensure;

  • TDS (cleanliness) and pH readings are taken from each radiator until acceptable water target readings are reached
  • rust inhibitor and alkali neutraliser are added into the clean radiators
  • the system is then reinstated and balanced as required so that all radiators work to optimum performance
