 Power Flush Heating System

 Can I flush my central heating system myself?
There are a couple of ways that you can clean the sludge out of your heating system. The first is called a powerflush, which is both the name of the method and a physical device that your heating engineer will use. Alternatively, you can take every radiator off one at a time and flush it yourself.

 How do I clean the sludge out of my heating system?
The easiest way to clean sludge in a radiator is to pay a professional to do it for you. Plumbers can perform 'power-flushes', which involve attaching flushing units to your central heating pipework and pumping clean, fresh water into the system. This forces out any gunk and debris.

Every five to six years Because a Powerflush is so powerful, it's only usually necessary every five to six years, unless a problem with your central heating causes a higher volume of build-up than normal.

 Can a Radiator flush cause problem?
Yes and No.
Yes, because a radiator flush is going to flush out any corrosion, debris, rust, and other contaminants.
If the flush isn't thoroughly to clear all of that out, it can loosen up those things which could clog up the cooling system, including the radiator.
