Regrettably most heating engineers even those working for the big national companies, fail to give adequate advise on the need to maintain good water quality within your heating system and consequently corrosion builds up and causes most break down issues.
Power flushing is a relatively new procedure that can have a profoundly beneficial effect upon heating systems that are in a poor condition. Power flushing loosens the sludge that has formed and this is purged from the system. Circulation pumps are especially vulnerable, as you can see in the photos.
The pump sounds like it’s working normally and may well be rotating but it can’t ‘pump’ due to the blocked impellors!
Do I need a Powerflush?
When I’m asked that question I say that, ‘any system in any condition will benefit from a power flush’. This is because all systems-unless they are brand new, have some sediment and scale. However most people will only consider paying for a powerflush if these have built up to such an extent that heating performance suffers or results in a break down!
Some of the symptoms that indicate a Power flush is needed:
- Hot tap runs hot then cold then hot!
- Dirty Water when Bleeding your Radiator
- Noisy Boiler – ‘Kettling’
- Radiator Slow to Heat
- Radiator Cold spots
- Noisy Pump
How does Power Flushing work?
The CLEARFLOW® 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 CLEARFLOW® 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 and reinstatement of the system to normal operation takes only a few minutes.
System flushing will not remedy design or mechanical faults, which should be rectified, but in many cases it will cure the problems caused by these.
