Glasgow – Power Flush


How It Works

Glasgow Power Flush

07542 781131

Mclellan Plumbing and Heating offer a full Glasgow Power Flush service throughout Glasgow and Lanarkshire.

We have been doing Power Flushing for over ten years having great results on blocked heating systems. Once a Power Flush has been carried out your heating system and boiler will perform much better and your radiators should heat up quicker.

Power Flush Glasgow is an investment in your heating system. Read on to find out why you may need a Power Flush, what we do during a Power Flush.

What Happens To Your Heating System Over Time

Over the years your Central Heating will build up with sludge which will settle in your heating pipework and radiators. Sludge build up is a mix of dirt from your central heating water and small particles of rust from your radiators. This starts to circulate and will then settle typically at the bottom of your radiators.

This sludge can also settle in radiator valves and pipework. If you have smaller micro bore pipework in your heating over time it can become more difficult to clean. Once sludge has settled it will restrict the flow of your heating water and this will cause problems such as radiators not heating up as quick as they once did and cold spots appearing on the radiators. Problems can also occur with your boiler with this sludge restricting the Boiler heat exchanger. A symptom of this on a combi boiler is if your hot water fluctuates hot and cold. 

A Radiator Central Heating Power Flush is an investment on your heating system.

What Will We Do During A Power Flush

The first thing Mclellan Plumbing and Heating would do, if not already fitted would be to fit a Magnetic Filter. This would aid to keep your heating circuit free from rust circulating in the future and would prevent rust particles from going through the heat exchanger in your boiler.

During a Power Flush certain chemicals are used throughout the process. During the start of the Power Flush cleaner is put into the circuit is allowed a change to circulate. This will help break down the buildup of the sludge. While the cleaner is circulating all but one of the radiators would be isolated so that the Power Flush is concentrated on that radiator.

The radiator would be manipulated with a vibrating tool to help loosen the sludge and then the same is down to the remainder of the radiators. Once the Power Flush has been completed the whole system is flushed out with cold water to remove the cleaner left in the system.

The Central Heating inhibitor is then put into the system and this will line in inside of your radiators helping to prevent rust in the future. If need be, we will also replace any radiator valves that are damaged.
