POWERFLUSHING drop services

PHP Services use Kamco flushing equipment. Kamco devleloped the first powerflushing pump in 1992. This wealth of experience coupled with continual research and developement enables them to provide a superior range of pumps chemicals and accessories.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF A SYSTEM IN NEED OF A POWERFLUSH ?

  • High heating bills
  • Noisy heating system
  • Radiators have cold spots
  • System slow to warm up
  • Radiators need regular bleeding
  • Pump failures
  • Evidence of sludge and rust in the header tank.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING MY HEATING SYSTEM POWERFLUSHED?

  • Lower heating bills – save up to 25%
  • Faster heat up times
  • Full surface of radiators heating up your home
  • Extended lifespan of heating system
  • Better circulation and a quieter system
  • Rust protection

How is power flushing carried out?

Heating systems are forcibly cleansed using water at high velocity, but low pressure, so that no physical damage is caused to the system. The objective 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 that they cause.

It is prudent to power flush a heating system immediately before fitting a new boiler to an existing system to prevent possible future problems, indeed boiler manufacturers insist on it in order to provide long term warranties. Many systems are found to contain corrosion and sludge, even if no flow problems have yet shown themselves.

Existing debris is often mobilized by alterations to the system/piping and the increased efficiency of the new boiler, and may then accumulate in the boiler heat exchanger, causing noisy operation, reduced efficiency and, in extreme circumstances, failure of the boiler. The high efficiency and compactness of modern boilers, developed to minimise fuel costs and pollution, means that they are more susceptible to problems caused by debris in the system water. PHP Services use Kamco flushing equipment.

System protection and water treatment

After cleaning your heating system we ensure it stays in tip-top condition by treating it with chemical inhibitors. We also fit full-bore magnetic filters and magnetic scale reducers where appropriate as standard on all our boiler installations.
