WHAT IS A POWER FLUSH?
A power flush is a cleansing process for your boiler which removes any dirt, sludge, rust, and debris that may have accumulated within your system over time.
IS A POWER FLUSH NECESSARY?
If you carry out regular servicing and maintenance (professional servicing is recommended annually) then a preventative power flush should only be necessary, every 5-6 years to clear debris and prevent significant blockages from taking hold.
HOW IS A POWER FLUSH DONE?
The engineer will connect a machine to your system. This will push a powerful, low-pressure flow of liquid through your system. This dislodges sludge and rust, removing it from your radiators and boiler. This liquid chemical will stop sludge building up again.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
To keep the system in good shape, power flushing is a must every five to six years. But you can also consider power flushing the system every eight to ten years. It will depend on the quality and sturdiness of the materials used in building the system.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
6 to 10 radiators – £300- £450
11 to 15 radiators – £400 – £600
