Here at Platypus Plumbing & Heating we currently use a Magnacleanse Central Heating Flushing System as we believe this is the fastest and most effective way to flush central heating systems, and involves minimal disruption and dismantling. Magnacleanse is a purpose-built central heating flushing system, designed to cure the circulation and boiler noise problems caused by accumulations of sludge, corrosion deposits and scale which are found in most ageing central heating systems.
The central heating flushing magnets are temporarily connected into a central heating system during the flushing process. The magnets along with special central heating flushing chemicals dislodge and mobilises sludge and corrosion deposits. Having loosened the debris, the magnets collect the sludge from the central heating system.
Radiators are also individually flushed without removal or disconnection from the system, (For problematic radiators disconnection and flushing outside maybe required). A flush can be extremely effective in cleaning systems that have corrosion problems as a result of a design fault, but we strongly recommend that any such design faults be rectified before flushing commences.
The success of a central heating flush will depend on the level of corrosion within the central heating system which has occurred beforehand. The process will cure most circulation problems, but cannot undo the corrosion and gradual decay that has led to the need to flush the central heating system. Whilst it is rare for a central heating system to experience leaks after or during the flushing process, it is not possible to inspect a system internally beforehand, and the need to use a flushing and dispersing chemical for effective cleansing means that occasionally a leak may appear where there was none before.
The advanced stage of corrosion required for such a situation means that the leak would occur imminently even without a flush. We believe that it is better that it occurs whilst we are present to remedy the problem, rather than for it to arise over a weekend or whilst the house is unoccupied. Systems which have been neglected over a period of time, or have not been treated with an effective corrosion inhibitor, may have severely compacted corrosion debris, in the pipe work, radiators, or boiler, and it is possible that even after the flush, some radiators may still not be fully effective, or boilers on the margin of failure may cease working due to sludge and debris later breaking loose and collecting in the heat exchanger.
PLEASE NOTE: The vast majority of central heating flushes that we carry out are without problem, and result in a cleaner and more efficient central heating system, with radiators restored to their original output.
