Power Flushing

The power flushing pump is simply connected into the heating system, either across standard circulator pump couplings, across the tails of one radiator, or wherever most practicable. The powerful flow, combined with instantaneous flow reverser device, will dislodge and mobilise deposits and corrosion which resist traditional system cleaning methods.

Once the corrosion and sludge deposits have been loosened and mobilised, fresh clean water is forced through the heating system, pushing the contaminated water out through a full bore dump valve to waste. During the CLEARFLOW process, radiators are individually flushed, without removing or disconnecting them from the system, by directing the full output of the pump through each radiator separately.

At the end of the flushing process, the system contains fresh clean water and reinstatement of the system to normal operation takes only a few minutes.

System flushing will not remedy design or mechanical faults, which should be rectified, but in many cases it will cure the problems caused by these.

Most smaller descaling pumps are not powerful enough to effectively flush a central heating system. They don’t have the vital flow rate or the pressure needed to maintain flow against the resistance of the heating system.

What’s the difference between a descaling pump and a power flushing pump?

Can I use a descaling pump for power flushing?
