Power flushing and fitting a Magnaclean filter for your boiler in Leeds


All boiler manufacturers insist on power flushing on the installation of a new boiler fitted onto an old central heating system before they will cover your boiler's warranty. The warranty on a newly installed boiler that is fitted by a Gas Safe engineer can range from 2 to 5 years. This is usually a free parts and labour cover plan.


Power flushing can help prevent your central heating from breaking down or not working as efficiently as it should. The hot water reacts with the steel radiators and the copper piping and creates a substance called Magnetite. Magnetite is deadly to a modern boiler as it can settle into your central heating system and boilers working parts and affect performance very slowly without you even being aware of it. If your boiler is not cleaned or has an inhibitor added on a regular basis, this could lead to boiler failure due to the build up of Magnetite on the boiler's parts. This can lead to expensive parts being replaced after a breakdown or even lead to having to have your boiler replaced - which obviously can be highly expensive compared to having a power flush.


At B.S Plumbing and Heating Ltd Leeds we can fit a Magnaclean for you so you do not get this problem again. We recommend power flushing when you have a new boiler fitted. Just ask one of our engineers for advice on cost and installation requirements.


All cheaper boiler installations usually suffer from Magenetite damage within the boiler which causes inefficient water heating and the breaking down of boiler parts. An expensively running heating system is often mistakenly blamed on the boiler itself rather than the cheapness of the installation. Cheap and quick labour installs installation of a heating system will cost highly over the long run in maintenance cost! Even some expensive boiler installs are just as costly if not fitted correctly which is why quality installation is as important as the appliances itself, if not more! At B.S Plumbing and Heating Ltd of Leeds you can rely on our installations being done correctly.


Power flushing options available with B.S Plumbing and Heating Ltd Leeds


Economy Flush

A service which is provided usually after new installation of a heating system.

It should be noted that this is not a Power Flush although it is quite commonly mis-sold as such by less reputable firms. It is mains cold water flushed through your heating system and in some circumstances it can be very effective and all that is needed. The Flush process takes 2 men a good 2-4 hours work, however if you are advised by another firm to have a power flush then note that this economy process is not it! At B.S Plumbing and Heating Ltd Leeds we will flush out all of the system and also the individual radiators till the system is running clean water through and then add inhibitor to your heating system which slows down the magnetite returning as quickly to help keep in full working order for longer. If requested we will also leave a water sample taken from your heating system for your inspection.


Price (all inclusive): £200*


Standard Power Flush

During this we add cleaning chemicals to your heating system which assist in breaking down Magnetite and debris deposits. The Standard Power Flush process takes 2 men a good full day’s work as we continue to power flush until the water in your system is completely clear. We may also take individual radiators off the wall and power jet them out if the magnetite is too hard and solid inside. We also vibrate and agitate the water inside the radiators to clean them out thoroughly. We then add inhibitor to your heating system which slows down the magnetite returning as quickly to help it keep it full working order for longer. If requested we will also leave a water sample taken from your heating system for your inspection.

A pre-visit is needed during which we add powerful pre-cleaner chemicals to your heating system which immediately starts breaking down Magnetite, scaling and debris deposits making the return visit for the power flush that much more effective.

Fitting a Magnetite filter - Magnetic cleaning filter for your new boiler

Fitting a magnetic filter will clean your heating system as you use it and take out the magnetite when it appears so reducing the chances of damage to the boiler from the Magnetite. If fitted properly, it is easily maintained & no parts are needed to service it - when you have your boiler serviced by us if you ask the engineer he will service your filter for you if we have fitted it ourselves - just ask one of B.S Plumbing and Heating Ltd Leeds' engineers for advice on cost and installation requirements


Fitting a Smart Pump

Note : A Smart Pump is only worth fitting in a clean heating system i.e. one that has already been thoroughly flushed!

The (A) Rated smart pump is a high tech energy saving control heating circulating pump it reduces the pumping speed when heating system and rooms are at set temperature, Thermostatic radiator valves; TRV on the radiators shut down when not needed so the Smart heating pumping speed slows down which reduced power needed to run the pump which saves energy and running cost, a heating pump can last many years if the water is clean in your heating system. The savings are from £25-£50 a year dependent on how much the heating system is used. Just ask one of B.S Plumbing and Heating Ltd Leeds' engineers for advice on cost and installation requirements
