Power Flushing

Central heating 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 Flushed?
  • 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
    flushing methods
  • 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.

Radiators with cold panels

Sludged up pipework

Pin holed radiators

Irritating boiler noises

Micro biological slime deposits

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 and valves.

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.
