POWERFLUSHING

This allows for the hard flushing of a central heating system with minimal dismantling. Flushing the system loosens corrosion deposits and sludge which is then removed from the system leaving pipes and radiators clear and free for good circulation.

SLUDGE - Cause - Effect

Sludge is a 'mud' resulting from the reaction between the water in your system and the steel in the radiators which can build up over a period of time and cause circulation and flow problems.

The following are some symptoms to watch out for, which may indicate your central heating system may have a sludge problem:

- Some radiators are completely or partially cold
- Radiators need frequent bleeding
- Repeated pump failures/corrosion deposits in pump casing
- Strange and unpleasant noises from the boiler.

From time to time, your central heating system may require bleeding or re-pressurising.
