A power flush is a clean and unobtrusive process that involves attaching a machine to your heating system that will pump high pressure water and cleaning fluids around the system to remove iron oxide deposits (magnetite). This prevents the build up from clogging up and blocking water pipes and allows radiators to heat up property.
