Has your central heating system been causing you concern?

Whether its radiators that fail to heat up, a shower that is never hot enough or a clunky and worrying noise coming from the heating system, there could be an easy solution that doesn’t require a new boiler or whole central heating system.

Unbeknownst to many of us, there is a sludge of black oxide that builds up in central heating systems. This sludge forms from a build-up caused by the chemical reaction in the system. Air, water, limescale and metal combined results in of black oxide; a thick, unappealing sludge.

When the sludge of black oxide builds up, it creates blockages in the pipes which, depending on where the blockages form, can mean that parts of the central heating cannot perform as they should. It becomes harder for the heat to get to where it needs to be, especially when sludge can almost block pipes completely.

The solution: Powerflushing
