Power Flush Services

Many of our customers throughout Southport, Banks, Tarleton and surrounding areas ask us about Power flushing services. We believe at G.Green Heating and Plumbing Ltd that Power flushing is possibly the most effective and efficient way of cleaning out a central heating installation.

Power flushing allows a strong flow of fresh water to pass through the central heating system, removing unwanted dirt and debris under controlled conditions.

What happens during a power flush?

The power flushing unit is connected to the heating circuit where the system pump, boiler or radiator is usually situated. We can now flush your central heating system thoroughly of debris.

Suppose you carry out regular servicing and maintenance by qualified engineers. In that case, a preventative Power flush should only be required every 5-6 years to clear debris and prevent significant blockages from taking hold.

However, this will vary depending on the system you have. For example, some boilers use copper heat exchangers rather than stainless steel, which will corrode more quickly.

Therefore, we always advise that if you plan to replace your old boiler, you request that the engineer perform a Power flush before the new boiler installation. Otherwise, you risk contaminating the new boiler with damaging sludge and debris in the old pipework.

Does your system need power flusing?

We have highlighted below some of the signs that you may need a power flush at home or
in your business.

Prevent wastage

If the correct water treatment methods are not adhered to, corrosion debris will undoubtedly build up in the boiler system resulting in limescale deposition. As a result, up to 30% of the system’s fuel consumption may go to waste.

Noise from your boiler

You may notice the noise from your boiler system increasing in frequency and intensity. This is due to deposits of sludge and scale building up in an unprotected boiler.

Cold spots on your radiator

You will notice that your radiators typically have cold spots in the lower areas. A cold spot of this nature indicates that a sediment build-up is restricting flow and lowering heat output.
