Plumbzone Power flushing is the process by which central heating systems are cleansed using water at a very high velocity, but at low pressure, so that no resulting damage is caused to the heating system. The process can be made even more effective with the addition of a powerful cleansing and mobilising agent.
Why Plumbzone Power flushing ?
Plumbzone Power Flushing restores systems with poor circulation and boiler noise problems (typically caused by a build up of sludge and corrosion) to the optimum operating condition. Plumbzone power flushing removes these deposits and the problems that they inherently cause.
Plumbzone Power flushing can also be used as a system pre clean and it is also an excellent way to
pre-commission clean installs of new heating systems, to remove any excess flux, swarf and other debris. Additionally it removes the grease and oils used to inhibit rust formations of components before they are used.
Prevention is better than cure!
It is wise to power flush a heating system before fitting a new boiler to an existing system to prevent possible problems in the future as many systems are found to contain corrosion and deposits, even if no flow problems have yet been pinpointed.
Pre existing deposits are often disturbed by alterations to the system/piping and the increased efficiency of the new boiler, which may then accumulate in the boiler heat exchanger, causing noisy operation, reduced efficiency and, in extreme circumstances, complete failure of the boiler.
The high efficiency and compactness of modern boilers, developed to minimise fuel costs and pollution, means that they are more susceptible to problems caused by deposits and debris.
