Power Flush
A power flush is a cleansing process which aims to remove deposits of sludge, rust and any other debris from your central heating system. These contaminants, if left, can seriously affect the efficiency of a heating system and in severe cases a power flush is the only option available.


When you might need a power flush

There are a number of signs to look for before deciding to go ahead with the power flush process. These include cold areas on radiators, excessive noise from the boiler or the heating system pump, dis-coloured water when you bleed the radiators and the slow warming of theheating system. You might also notice the tap water getting cloudy, especially if there is a build up of lime scale as well. It is also recommended that the power flush process is carried out if you intend to connect a new boiler replacement to an old heating system. This is because most new boilers are condensing boilers and any contaminants already present in the heating system can quickly damage the internal pipe work of the new boiler.


The power flushing process

The overall aim of a power flush is to restore the full circulation of water around the central heating system, however, it can also eliminate noise from the boiler and the pump as well. This means that the entire system has to be flushed in order to get the best results.


A heating engineer will connect a powerful high flow/low pressure pumping unit to the central heating system – either to the circulation pump in regular boiler systems or the pump head in combination boilers – and with the help of high strength cleansing chemicals will flush out anything in the system. The chemicals used during a power flush include a sludge crust breaker and remover to help get rid of rust and sludge, a de-scaler to break down lime-scale and a corrosion inhibitor to stop further rusting from occurring. The crust breaker and remover are acid-based so that they help to

combat any rust present and any other debris, such as sand particles, that might have settled in the radiators, pipes and boiler. At the end of the process there is no acid left in the central heating system’s water.

Time needed for a power flush
Most power flushing professionals state that a full power flush will take around 6 hours to complete. This is an estimate though as some badly affected heating systems will require more time whilst others may be finished quicker.


It is important that your central heating system is as efficient as it can be at all times and although a power flush can be an expensive process, it can also save a lot of money over time with regards to your heating bills but should be used in conjunction with a complete boiler service for best results. The process is clean and safe when done by a professional and can quickly eliminate cold radiators and noisy boilers and

pumps thus restoring your heating system to the condition it was when new.


What is involved in Plumbing?
Contrary to popular perception, plumbing is a very interesting and varied career. The sheer variety of work makes it impossible to list all that can be undertaken. Some of the jobs that a plumber does involve installing the water supply and fuel supply systems, for example:

  • Cold and hot water supply to bathrooms,  kitchens
  • Central heating systems and gas or oil  supply systems
  • Above ground drainage systems

Another aspect of the plumbers work is maintenance and repair. Everyone  should be aware that boilers and other fuel-burning appliances need annual servicing to keep them safe. Furthermore, water supply systems and boilers and central heating systems are quite complex and can sometimes break down and again the plumber can be called upon to figure out what’s gone wrong and repair the system.

 As well as fitting the piping systems that carry water around the building, plumbers are involved with keeping the inside of the building dry by fitting gutters and sheet lead weatherings to chimneys and roofs.

What does a plumber do?

  • Plan out the job required, or work out what needs repairing
  • Be able to follow plans and drawings, and understand technical instructions
  • Fix baths, sinks, radiators, etc. to walls, in floors or ducts
  • Measure distances to work out the lengths of piping needed
  • Cut and bend piping to correct dimensions
  • Join piping so that it doesn’t leak
  • Work as part of a team with joiners, bricklayers, electricians, etc.
