Hot Water De-scaling
A closely allied branch of power flushing is hot water system de-scaling. Â We have been doing this for huge calorifiers in hospitals and office blocks AND we’ve done it in hundreds of homes. Â Generally speaking there is no extra cost involved. Â Where it’s needed we will generally have talked to you before arriving.
We are all familiar with limescale on a day-to-day basis with domestic products such as kettles and showers, baths etc. Surface limescale is relatively easy to deal with a proprietary brand of limescale remover. However, less easy to see is the effect of sludge and scale inside pipes – Shown right, is a five year old pump valve which has been almost completely blocked!
it is generally accepted that the Midlands is a â€˜medium to lowâ€™ limescale area whereas the further South, the harder the water!
However, in any area limescale will reduce the efficiency of high performance products such as:
- The narrow waterways of the plate heat exchangers found in combi boilers.
- Plate heat exchangers in commercial applications
- Cooling towers
- Direct Fired Water Heaters
PowerFlushUK always uses the best descaling crystals to ensure your central heating system is properly descaled and will stay clean for longer.
