Power Flushing

At Paul Shortall Plumbing & Heating Ltd, we offer quick, efficient, and highly effective power flushing services. Power flushing is the process by which central heating systems are cleaned using water and chemicals at high velocity with low pressure so that no physical damage is caused to the system.


Power flushing is used to clean out your entire heating system including the boiler heat exchangers. This removes the build-up of grime, sludge, or lime scale which can cause a reduction in the efficiency of the heating system. Power flushing is a fast and efficient service and is suitable for pretty much any home heating system.

Your central heating system will let you know when it is due a cleaning. These signs include:

Cold spots on radiators

Radiators cold at the bottom

Loud noises from the boiler

Boiler cutting out regularly

Noisy pipes

Hot water fluctuating in temperature

Blocked pipes and valves

Radiators needing regular bleeding

Dirty water bleeding from radiators

Inability to control radiator temperature
