Boilers Care & Preventative Maintenance - Power Flushing

If your radiators have a cold spot in the middle then they will probably need a Power Flush. Power Flush is an effective technique to keep your radiators working efficiently. Water and cleaning chemicals are pumped through your radiators at high pressure which flushes out any build-up and dirt that is causing a blockage.


By Power Flushing all your radiators, you will be making your central heating system more efficient which will save you money on your heating bills. It could also save you the time and potential money spent on central heating repairs.

About Power Flushing

Archers Heating will use a dedicated flushing pump, which uses high volume, high velocity and low pressure to clean your system through.

Specialist chemicals are used to loosen then mobilise any scale deposits in your pipes and radiators, effectively removing any stubborn coatings to the inside of your system and flushing them out.Plummer , Gas  Engineer, Central Heating,  Chippenham, Highworth , Malmesbury, Bath, Devizes, Hungerford, Newbury, Stroud, Cirencester, Fairford, Cricklade, Witney, Oxford,  Farringdon,  Lechlade on Thames, Royal Wooton Bassett, Malmesbury

What does Power Flushing do?

The objective of power flushing is to restore systems with circulation and boiler noise problems (caused by sludge and corrosion deposits) to optimum operation. Power flushing removes these deposits and the problems they cause.

The success of a power flush will depend on the level of heating system corrosion which has occurred beforehand. The process will cure most circulation problems, but cannot undo the corrosion and gradual decay that has led to the need to power flush the system.

After Power Flushing

While it is rare for a heating system to experience leaks after the power flushing process, it is not possible to inspect a system internally beforehand, and the need to use a flushing and dispersing chemical for effective cleansing means that occasionally we may find a leak.



The advanced stage of corrosion required for such a situation means that the leak would have occurred imminently even without a power flush. We believe that it is better that it occurs while we are present to remedy the problem, rather than for it to arise over a weekend or while the house is unoccupied.

The Limitations of Power Flushing

Systems which have been neglected over a period of time or have not been treated with an effective corrosion inhibitor may have severely compacted corrosion debris in the pipe-work, radiators, or boiler and it is possible that even after the power flush that some radiators may still not be fully effective or boilers on the margin of failure may cease working due to sludge and debris later breaking loose and collecting in the heat exchanger.



The cost of a power flush is a standard power flush only and if any of the above or similar problems arise during or after the power flush then Archers Heating & Plumbing Ltd cannot be held responsible. Any further work required would need to be carried out at an additional cost.
