What is Powerflushing
and why is it so important?
It has always been of great benefit to maintain clean water in your radiators and boiler but since the introduction of the condensing gas boiler it is now vital.
New condensing gas boilers convert a massive 90% of the heat created by burning natural gas into the water flowing round your radiators and hot water cylinder if the water flowing through your boiler is contaminated with corrosion and debris it will not transfer the energy from the gas flame to the water, energy efficiency will be reduced drastically until the boiler fails and the appliance needs either to have a replacement heat exchanger or a new gas boiler. Manufacturers will invalidate a guarantee and it will be a costly experience. Keeping the water clean will make the system quieter, more efficient, there will be less maintenance required to your central heating system, pumps, valves and all parts of the system will last longer just to mention some of the advantages.
Powerflushing can be referred to as jet flushing or hard flushing and is a proven way of removing the sludge and debris from your Central Heating system. The Powerflush machine (
Once cleaned should you then allow the system to continue corroding (it will because you will have water, air and mild steel radiators) allow the sludge to take hold again with all the disadvantages?
