A broken down boiler or noisy radiators that need
regular bleeding usually indicate that your central heating system
needs a good clean.
Before the winter sets in it is even more

optimised central heating system that won't let you down during the
cold winter months.
When hiring a plumber to carry out Power
Flushing work on your heating system make sure that their work is fully
guaranteed for a year and that you will receive a certificate
confirming that pH levels and cleanliness within your system correspond
with industry standards.

Benchmark demand thorough cleaning of the heating system, and Power
Flushing is the favoured method.
Why Power Flush for winter?
Power Flushing is a powerful method used to clean heating systems.
