Whole of the Process of power flushing is basically carried out in order to restore the circulation of water around the central heating system.
It involves the connection of high flow pumping unit to the central heating system and with the help of high strength cleansing, chemicals will flush out anything in the system.
The chemicals used during a power flush include a sludge crust breaker and remover to help get rid of rust and sludge, a descaler to break down lime scale and use of a corrosion inhibitor to stop further rusting from occurring. The crust breaker and remover are acid-based so that they help to combat any rust present and any other debris, such as sand particles, that might have settled in the radiators, pipes and boiler.
At the end of the process there is no acid left in the central heating system’s water.
The professionals in this field have estimated an average time of 6 hours to complete this process, but this time may vary depending upon the condition of the central heating system. Some systems may be not that dirty or some may be hugely affected by the dirt and debris.
The price for power flushing depends upon the size of the central heating system and the place where it may be situated. Average price ranges from $500 to $1400. Descaler is usually not included in the deal so in order to have this facility as well, you have to pay for it on top.
Although at first power flushing seems to be an expensive process but it surely benefits you in the long run considering the cost-effective aspect of the bills of your home.
