    Do you need a power flush still with new rads

    My Mother-in-law was quoted £1,000 by British Gas to do a power flush on her system as her rads aren't performing well. I was wondering, as 4 radiators need to be upgraded to doubles, would this need to be done if they are drained off and replaced? How does one actually know it needs a power...

    Orange spots. Rust. Washing machine or power flush?

    I get orange spots when washing clothes. Please see photo. I think it is rust. I’ve checked there’s no metal in the machine. I have also run a long wash with lemon juice. Neither have solved it. I read power flushing is the answer to rust elsewhere in the system. How can I tell...

    Pump running but no power to boiler

    On a breakdown which is stumping me. The boiler has no power to it even though everything else in the system is working as it should. The 3 way moves across when it should and kicks in the pump but there is no power on the wire entering the boiler.
