Sludge, oil, grease and rust causes the efficiency and performance to degrade, which results in noticeably problems such as:

• The boiler or components, mainly the pump, become noisy or fail.
• Boiler overheats / shuts off completely.

Power Flushing, as the name suggests, is flushing the system under high pressure to remove all unwanted matter, such as sludge and rust.
