A power flush is the cleaning and cleansing of your central heating system to remove debris, sludge and lime scale built up over the years to create a more efficient system saving on bills and potential boiler repair costs in the future.
How does it work?
The process of power flushing is the pumping of water around the central heating system at high velocity with the aid of special chemicals which help to loosen debris, sludge, lime scale and deposits collected in your pipework from over the years.

I am having a new boiler fitted, do I need a power flush?
Yes, boiler manufacturers highly recommend a power flush before the installation of a new boiler.

Installing a new boiler without a power flush can lead to premature failure and may even invalidate the warranty.
