The Power flush equipment connects to your central heating and cleans the whole system without having to take off all the radiators. A cleaner is added to the system via the powerflush machine which loosens the rust. The heating is turned on to check for cold spots within the radiators and then each individual radiator is flushed through. The sludge flows from the radiators and then is deposited from the system.
When to power flush a heating system?
Use a Flushing Machine when:
Fitting a new boiler to an existing system
Fitting TRVs or upgrading to a fully pumped system
Cleaning drop feed radiators in-situ
Removing black sludge
Overcoming circulation problems
For curing boiler noise
Gas appliances that have been supplied by the landlord in tenanted accommodation are, by law, required to be tested and certified on an annual basis.
An annual safety check is carried out on each gas appliance/flue by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Checks need to have taken place within one year of the start of the tenancy/lease date, unless the appliances have been installed for less than 12 months, in which case they should be checked within 12 months of their installation date.
Gas fittings (appliances, pipework) and flues are maintained in a safe condition and to current standards.
All installation, maintenance and safety checks are carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
A record of each safety certificate is kept for two years.
A copy of the current safety certificate (CP12), is issued to each existing tenant within 28 days of the certificate being completed, or to any new tenant before they move in. See the Health & safety Executive website for more www.hse.gov.uk/gas/domestic.
