The Power Flush Association was created to set a standard for our member companies in the UK and Ireland. Our members have the necessary training, experience and insurance to safely and effectively power flush your central heating system. Displaying our logo is a condition of membership, all members have to display our logo on their website. Don't be fooled: Companies that claim membership but do not display our logo are probably NOT members of ours. If you are not sure about a company you are considering using, please contact us.
The Power Flush Association is the first membership organisation of its type, in the power flushing industry. Power flushing is an unregulated profession and anyone can start a business - and - claim to be a professional, no matter what their background or skill level. All they need to do is buy a power flush machine and build a fancy website. There is no way of knowing who is experienced in the field and who is not. We aim to create local experienced member companies, with proven track records. Giving the public peace of mind, that when they use one of our member companies, they will get the best result possible.
We provide free advice, information and training regarding power flushing to individuals and businesses alike. This benefits both our members and the public, as it guarantees experienced operatives with access to specialist knowledge when they need it, while giving the public access to the same information and a complaints procedure should something go wrong.
Most common public inquiries:
1) I need a quote for a power flush. Get a quote from our local member here>>
2) I have a microbore system (small diameter pipes) and have been told to replace all my pipes.
Power flushing is not that effective at cleaning microbore pipes and often fail to clean enough sludge out to get a system to work correctly. We developed a new process that is ideally suited in cleaning these systems. We call it POWDER FLUSH. Visit website >> Watch video>>
3) Plastic piped systems playing up. Heat exchangers being blocked and re-blocked.
These systems tend to be harder to clean and success depends on the “stage” (how blocked) your system is at. Read more here >>>
4) Insurance companies refusing further work, until a power flush is done.
Insurance companies do not like fitting new parts on dirty systems as the sludge/rust in the system might damage the new part and cause more needless callouts. It is a fact that systems that are regularly cleaned break down less and extends the life of all the parts on the system, including the boiler. Both these facts are in the best interest of you and your insurance company.
5) Companies (Insurance and other) demanding proof of power flush.
When you get your system cleaned always get a certificate as proof of power flush. Having a “services record” helps companies diagnose problems when they arise, as sludge can be excluded from the equation, in a clean system. There are also many people that do not get their systems cleaned, but claim that they have. Companies have caught on to this and now demand proof.
6) Companies demanding re-flushing of system.
Power flushing will never clean a system 100% and how close to 100% will depend on the experience and skill of the operative doing the work. Systems that “just need a clean” with no serious issues are easy to clean for all skill levels. When your system has major sludge problems, experience makes a huge difference in the results. Something as small as where the operative connects his machine can either mean success of failure. Our members, power flush all the time and some have performed over 1000 procedures. They are highly skilled and experienced and in serious cases, offer the best chance of success. In some cases the problem is actually a broken part and re-flushing a system will not make a difference.
