Local Plumbers carries out Power Flushing on heating systems to improve the performance and life of your new or existing heating systems.
By using our high powered jetting machines , we can remove all the sludge, silt and debris from the radiators and pipework to leave your heating system working like new.
● Does your boiler make noise?
● Does your radiators feel half cold?
● Do you hear noise in your pipes?
● Rusty radiators
● Small leaks from the radiators
● Central Heating pump failure
● Boiler keeps needing to be reset?
● It takes a long time for your heating system to heat up the house
● Dark water coming form your radiators when you bleed them.
These are all expressions used (in the heating trade over many years) to denote 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 process can be made even more effective with the addition of powerful cleansing and mobilising agents.
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 boilers developed to minimise fuel costs and pollution, means that they are more susceptible to problems caused by debris in the system water.
