Found 27th Oct 2014
Not for everyone but if you are looking for a power flush and don't want to pay stupid prices then this is a good deal. I have just hired mine from Friday 31st October to Monday for £71.14 + vat
If you have a basic DIY knowledge you should be able to do this yourself.
Its not too hard to do it can just been time consuming.
Alot better than the BG and NP charges for them to do it.

Plus VAT

Wat is it

colonic irrigation

Bargain - Wish there was one local to me...

OP - Did you buy the cleaning fluid from HSS or use your own?

Worth checking your local plumber though, mine told me £90 cash for this

£90 for a power flush?

I used fernox, which you can buy on amazon

If someone has said they will do a power flush for. £90. It's a bargain. Doubt they will do it properly for that tbh.

I just fitted new radiators yesterday but haven't refilled yet...may just hire one of these n power flush whole system before reconnecting n refilling with inhibitor....

£113 for a week. Better to buy a week and then shared with someone tu cut down the cost further. Heat added.

Great price for hire of this machine. Scottish gas charge £500 plus for this type of central heating treatment. Heat added

If not u could advertise on FB to provide a powerflush service locally to get ya money back lol

Best off getting a Magnaclean. Powerfushing is very rarely necessary. Plumbers will lie to you and say you need to power flush validate the boiler warranty. Power flushing is the number one way plumbers rip off customers. If this machine doesn't come with magnets don't waste your money, find one with magnets.

They are not a waste of money. Magna Clean is good, but if your system is heavily sludged up then a Magna clean wont always shift is. Magna clean is good if you have a decent flow and return. But if its really blocked or restricted then the water will just take the easiest route bypassing the blockage.

If you use the power flush with good chemicals then they are very good value for money.

I do agree with plumbers ripping you off though and just suggesting a power flush.

Anyone decent power flush should take a min of at least 4 hours for a small system.

A power flusher without magnets is a joke really. No reputable powerflusher would use one. On top of that you would want to be using a radiator vibrator on an sds drill to make sure you get all the sludge out. If the system really needs powerflushed there is no point doing a half assed job.

I have used this system before on my parents system and a friends....Restored their system fine. So not really a half arsed job. A magna Clean one is a better system am not doubting that but they can cost a few quid more.
This is £84 for 4 days then u could buy the magna clean to add on to the system for £85.

If you can find a magna clean one for a similar price let me know.

A Magnaclean is not a replacement for a power flush. Anyone who has neglected their system to the extent that it has stopped working they clearly need a power flush. In 10 years of doing this I have only encountered a handful of occasions flushing has been necessary. We only use flushers with magnets and always vibrated the rads at the same time.

.

Please read your boiler manual if you are getting a new one fitted it will state 'Failure to flush and add inhibitor to the system will invalidate the appliance warranty'.

If you understood what you are talking about you would realise the difference between flush and powerflush. No boiler manufacturer requires a power flush, the British Standard does not even require a powerflush. Manufacturers require the system to be cleaned to ensure no damage occurs to the boiler.

Good value for a machine if you know what you are doing
