Plumbers in Putney | A Guide to Power Flushing

Power flushing is an effective way to clear boilers, pipes and radiators. This offers a range of benefits for domestic and commercial customers and is a worthwhile service in many circumstances. However, before you decide on power flushing, it is important you understand what it is, how it works and the advantages. That’s why our plumbers have produced this handy guide for property owners in Putney and all the surrounding areas.

A power flush is a process that involves using specialist equipment to send water through the system at high velocity. This dislodges build-up of sludge, rust and other debris. A chemical may also be added to the water to help breakdown sludge. As such, power flushing is an ideal way to keep your central heating in good condition.

When is Power Flushing Necessary?

The following are some of the signs plumbers see that may indicate you would benefit from a professional power flush:

• Radiators are cold at the bottom
• Noticeable loss in system efficiency
• When bleeding or removing radiators, you notice water is discoloured
• Ongoing problems such as air locks, strange noises and boiler issues

Our plumbers in Putney also recommend a power flush if you are installing a new boiler but have an old central heating system. The best way to determine if power flushing is right for you is to contact Ecoheat Plumbing. We listen to your concerns, check your system and provide appropriate advice to resolve issues in a timely, cost-effective manner.

What Are the Benefits?

By effectively clearing the system, power flushing offers numerous benefits. Firstly, it helps improve the efficiency and lifespan of boilers and central heating systems. A power flush also prevents breakdowns by allowing your system to operate properly. Furthermore, because deposits in pipes can lead to blockages, removing build-up helps avoid disruptive issues.

Consequently, power flushing saves domestic and commercial customers in Putney money, time and stress while ensuring properties are comfortable and functional. For maximum effect, we also provide additional plumbing services to suit your needs.

How Long Does It Take?

Our plumbers complete power flushing in several stages. These include setting up equipment, flushing the entire system, washing a chemical neutraliser through the system and adding an inhibitor fluid to prevent corrosion and sludge build-up.

Depending on the size and condition of the system, the full process can take between a few hours to a full day. As a reputable company, Ecoheat Plumbing does not cut corners to complete the job quicker. We will be on site for as long as necessary to complete the work correctly and ensure the best possible results for each customer in the Putney area.
