Did you know you can save up to 70% on your heating bill?
Old conventional boilers had very few parts and cast iron bodies, this meant they could take a ‘hammering’ for many years and you would probably only replace a couple of pumps. Nowadays the new combi and combi-condensing boilers we have in our homes have many sensitive parts which can be very expensive to replace.
When the experts investigated why these parts were failing (sludge, debris, iron filings being the cause) the first ‘powerflush’ machine was born in 1996.
Since then the machines and chemicals have got even better and you now get great results with the extras on the machines like ‘magnetic filters’.
If you have had a new boiler fitted or especially if you have had one swapped then you need a powerflush! Don’t wait for your parts to start to fail and a heating engineer to tell you, you need one.
The most common and often most expensive part to go due to this build up on a combi system is your heat exchanger. But lots more parts are effected also.
Sadly people are not aware of these facts and usually get informed by the big companies who they pay a monthly subscription to, to cover their boiler parts that they need one.#
This is not included in their price and every winter they charge their customers a fortune for this service as soon as any part fails for what is half a days work.
In doing this they not only make a large profit from you the customer but they insure that the likelihood of them replacing anymore parts is minimal once the flush has been done (pocketing your monthly subscription as well).
Water in central heating system is contaminated with rust, sludge and other debris because of internal corrosion. These corrosion products are causing circulation and boiler noise problems, premature failures of heating system components and reducing system efficiency (increasing your fuel bills). System needs to be flushed and cleaned and the best solution is powerflush.
Power flush is the fastest and most effective way to flush heating system.
How does it work?
Power flushing pump is simply connected into the heating system, either across standard circulator pump couplings, across the tails of one radiator, or wherever most practicable.
The powerful flow, combined with instantaneous flow reverser device, will dislodge and mobilise deposits and corrosion which resist traditional system cleaning methods.
Once the corrosion and sludge deposits have been loosened and mobilised, fresh clean water is forced through the heating system, pushing the contaminated water out through a full bore dump valve to waste. During the process, radiators are individually flushed, without removing or disconnecting them from the system, by directing the full output of the pump through each radiator separately.
At the end of the flushing process, the system contains fresh clean water, scale and corrosion inhibitor is added giving long term protection to heating system. Reinstatement of the system to normal operation takes only a few minutes.
When hard water is heated, calcium and magnesium contained in the water can build up a limescale in the central heating system, especially in boiler’s heat exchanger. This creates an insulating layer, reducing heat transfer to the water and reducing efficiency of the boiler.
A 1 mm layer of limescale will cause a 7% increase in energy input to the boiler to meet the same heat demand, so more gas is burned and fuel bills are much higher.
Limescale can also restrict or block water passageway in the central heating system (especially in boiler heat exchanger) affecting water flow rate and reducing water temperature.
WE can solve the problem by using power flush pump and descaling chemicals which dissolve limescale leaving your system completely clean.
