How to flush heating system
At My London Tradesman, we are aware of how important your heating system is during the cold winter months. This is why we urge anyone with doubts about their appliances to seek a power flush as it’s the best maintenance that works for the entire system and only takes a few short hours. If you are seeking out ‘how to flush heating system’ then My London Tradesmen is the right site to be on.
Here is a simple guide on how a power flush is carried out on your heating system:
First, we advise you bleed your radiator and see if the water is dirty. If so, your system has a build up of sludge which needs to be flushed out. Then seek help from a fully qualified engineer – the very people we can put you in touch with.
Secondly, an engineer will attach a power flushing tank to your heating system and pump your entire system thoroughly of chemicals. These chemicals will corrode the sludge in your system and eventually neutralise the pH of the water to make it safe again. The chemicals are pumped in at a low pressure so no harm is done to your appliances.
The simple process can take between 4 and 8 hours, depending on how many radiators there are in your property.
After your system has been fully flushed, My London Tradesman advises you get a magnetic filter installed. This will prevent any further build ups of sludge and ferrous metals in your water and are not expensive installations.
