RIDGEWAY Plumbing and Heating | Power Flushing.

Central Heating Problems?

  • Is the system slow to warm up?
  • Are some radiators completely or partially cold?
  • Do radiators need frequent bleeding?
  • Is radiator water dirty and discoloured?
  • Radiators with pin hole perforations and 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.

A clearflow power flush can restore circulation and efficiency to the heating system by removing these undesirable products. It purges them from the system, and replaces aggresive water with clean water, chemically treated with Systemsafe-DM corrision inhibitor to prevent future problems.

Power Flush Equipment

Fitting a new boiler to an existing heating system?

Modern boilers, developed to minimise fuel costs and pollution have heat exchangers with narrow waterways and this makes them more susceptible to problems caused by debris in the water.

Boiler manufacturers insist that heating systems are thouroughly flushed according to BS7593 : 2006 when installing a new boiler. A Clearflow power flush is far more effective than traditional methods and ensures that the boiler installation complies with 'best practices'

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 aggresive water; treatment prevents further corrision
  • Cures or prevents boiler noise
  • Power flushing and descaling in only one visit
  • Complete process carried out in less that 6 hours
  • More effective than tradtional methods
  • Minimise boiler warranty problems

Power Flushing Tech

What happens during a Clearflow power flush?

The Clearflow power flushing pump is simply connected into the heating system, either across the standard circulator pump couplings, across the tails of one ratiator or wherever most practicable.

Power flushing is a highly effective cleansing operation which wirks by pumping water at a much higher velocity than usual through the heating system to loosen and mobilise harmful corrosion deposits and to suspend them in the rapidly moving water. The process is made more effective by specilist cleansing chemicals, and an instantaneous flow reversal device which creates turbulance 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 Clearflow process radiators are individually flushed without removing or dosconnecting them from the system, this is done by directing the full output of the pump through each radiator separately.

Clearflow power flushing is not a high pressure operation and is suitable for most domestic wet central heating systems. It is carried out with minimum disturbances 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 syetm begins. The combimnation of water, air, a mixture of metals and even installation debris and contaminants, can result in internal corrosion, sludge formation in flow areas and scaling of boilers and heat exchanges.

Symptoms imclude cold panels in radiators, blocked radiators, irritating boiler noises, a long recovery time after drawing off hot water, an inadequate water supply and failure of pumps, radiators and valves.

These problems are not inevitable, and good care and maintainance of a system and the addition to the heating system of a quality corrosion and scale inhibitor such as SYSTEMSAFE DM will prevent and often cure them.

Systemsafe- DM carries the Buildcert / DWTA logo to show that it has passed a tough corrosion cell test in a laboratory independently monitored by Buildcert to ensure compliance.
