Having Central Heating Problems?
You May Need a Power Flush

GGB Heating Solutions offer power flushing, which is the recommended way of cleaning sludge or magnatight from a heating system. All new boiler installations are required to be flushed out, if you’re installing a new boiler to an existing system, then it may require power flushing.


Unsure if a Power Flush is needed?

If you have an existing central heating system that doesn't get as hot as it used to or radiators that get hot at the top, but not the middle or bottom, plate/main heat exchanger blockages or pipes that blocked, these are all signs that a power flush maybe required.

We provide a free no obligation inspection to determine if you require a power flush or not. During this consultation we will inspect all of your radiators to check for blockages and any other problems that may need to be rectified before the power flush takes place.

Finally we will take a water sample from one of your radiators just to make sure it is a power flush that's needed and not a chemical flush and filter.


Central Heating Blockages

A power flush will not remove a blockage but will stop them returning. All blockages will have to be removed prior starting a power flush and are not covered in the price.

If your system isn't too badly fouled up, you may be able to just have a chemical flush or fit a filter and x900 filter aid. A chemical flush consists of adding x400 or x800 and leaving it in the system for between a few hours to a maximum of two weeks, then flush it out and adding the inhibitor x100.

We will also have to visually check the pipe for any none barrier pipe on the heating system which will still allow air into the heating system and will cause the sludge to return.

For the ultimate protection it would be advisable to have both a power flush then fit a magna clean filter, x100 inhibitor and x900 filter aid after. By doing this it will continue to protect your system.

Alternative Solutions to Power Flushing

Magna Clean

Magna Cleans are central heating filters which are designed to remove small iron particles (known as sludge) from your central heating system. These can prevent build up of sludge which could either block your pipes or boiler components and cause and expensive repair.

Once fitted they continuously protect against sludge build up and if used with the correct chemicals they will protect your heating system for years to come.

GGB Heating Solutions have been fitting magna cleans for the past 10 years and believe that they are the most cost effective way of preventing sludge build up in boilers.
