problems?....then an ABC Power Flush could be the answer!
Is your system slow to
warm up? Are some radiators completely or partially cold? Do
radiators need frequent bleeding? Is radiator water dirty or
discoloured? Radiators with pin hole perforations an leakage?
Are there "kettling" noises from the boiler? Do you have
repeated pump failures?
Any of these symptoms could indicate that your system has
circulation and flow problems resulting from internal corrosion
and the subsequent formation of rust, sludge and scale deposits.
An ABC Power Flush can restore circulation and efficiency to the
heating system by removing these undesirable products. It purges
them from the system and replaces aggressive water with clean
water, chemically treated to prevent future problems
Why have your heating system Power
Cures flow and circulation problems
Restores system efficiency
Restores heat output to radiators
Cleans the whole system including underfloor pipe work
Removes aggressive water, treatment prevents further corrosion
Cures or prevents boiler noise
Power flushing and descaling in only one visit
Minimises boiler warranty problems
More effective than traditional
Complete process carried out in a day* (*Depending on System Size)
What happens during an
ABC Power Flush?
The power flush pump is
simply connected into the heating system, either across the
standard circulator pump couplings, across the tails of one
radiator or wherever most practical.
Power flushing is a highly effective cleaning operation which
works by pumping water at a much higher velocity than usual
through the heating system, to loosen and mobiles harmful
corrosion deposits and to suspend them in the rapidly moving
water. The process is made more effective by specialist
cleansing chemicals and an instantaneous flow reversal device,
which creates turbulence in the radiators to optimise 'pick up'
of the debris.
Once loosened, the unwanted debris is purged from the system
with clean water. 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. During the 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.
ABC's Power Flushing is not a high pressure operation and it is
suitable for most domestic wet central heating systems. It is
carried out with minimal disturbance and disruption to the
normal operation of the system, often without disconnecting the
boiler or any radiators.

Why do heating
systems need protecting?
As soon as a heating system
is completed and filled with water, deterioration of the system
begins. The combination of water, air, a mixture of metals and
even installation debris and contaminants can result in internal
corrosion, sludge formation in low flow areas and scaling of
boilers and heat exchanges.
Symptoms include cold panels in radiators, blocked radiators,
irritating boiler noises, a long recovery time after drawing hot
water, an inadequate water supply and failure of pumps, radiators
These problems are not inevitable and good care and maintenance
of a system and the addition to the heating system of a quality
corrosion and scale inhibitor will prevent and often cure them.
