Over time sludge can block pipes and prevent the radiators from distributing heat around your system. Sludge also seriously affects the efficiency of your central heating system, it inevitably leads to higher fuel costs and shorten the time when you need to replace some or all of the central heating system.
The central heating system can also be power flushed.
Special sludge removal chemicals are added to the system via the header tank or the radiators which are then vibrated to agitate the corrosion . This process is then done to each of the radiators in turn, and the pipework and boiler until all of the floating debris has been removed via a twin magnetic filtration system which collects the debris and sludge removing 100% of the corrosion, the efficiency of the central heating system can be improved by up to 25% this will also keep your system working without the risk of expensive repairs to the boiler caused by sludge and debris.
This will remove the corrosion but we always recommend fitting of a magnetic filter.
