Dirty water and sludge from scale and rust, build-up in the heating system causing serious damage, clogging the boiler’s tiny waterways, damaging the pump and heat exchanger – ultimately resulting in boiler breakdown. Sludge also collects in the pipework and at the bottom of radiators causing cold spots and clanging noises as the system fires up.
Overall a dirty sluggish heating system uses more gas and costs more money to run.
What is Power Flushing and how does it work?
Power Flushing is the most efficient and effective method of cleaning a central heating system. It is the best and most thorough way to remove sludge, dirty water and debris. Power Flushing tackles the whole system – flushing out the scale, sludge and rust that is lodged at the bottom of radiators and in pipework – restoring the central heating system to tip top condition. Power Flushing is fully compliant with UK Building Regulations and professional best practice.
Sludge or calcium build up in a heating system will cause radiators and boiler heat exchangers to fail. This leaves rust and debris in the bottom of radiators which corrodes down into oxide sludge. This then leads to blocked waterways in radiators, pipe work and the boiler heat exchangers.
Blockages slow down the transfer of heat which causes pipework, valves and heating control severe damage, if not treated in most cases this will lead to expensive boiler repairs or in some case having to replace the boiler.
Be warned: changing your boiler without Power Flushing your central heating system first could lead to you needing another boiler in the near future. This also applies to the controls which may have also been replaced on the system – it will also render your manufactures guarantee void.

Had a bad leak at 3am and my stop cock had ceased so I couldn't turn my water off, I called these shortly after and had the leak sorted within an hour.

Jay & Dave from 1-Gas Plumbing &Heating came to us on Monday 9th Jan to fit our new hob & oven fit a new stop cock new drain cover.their attention to detail and craftsmanship was amazing.would highly recommended them .we will certainly use them again soon for a boiler/fire service
Just wanted to thank Jay. We had no water and no heating today so called 1-Gas. Jay tried to help over the phone at first to avoid it costing us but when this wasn't possible was with us in 20 minutes. He sorted the problem very quickly and everything is now working perfectly. Thank you Jay - we would really recommend 1-Gas, very professional, prompt and friendly.
Today we had 1-Gas attend our rented home regarding a severe water leak, we were left to sort this our selves by our landlord and letting agents who wasn't interested in helping us until Monday.
They arrived and straight away was shocked with what we have had to deal with. They got onto finding the location of the problem straight away and took care of everything. They were here all day to help us out. We honestly can not thank them enough they worked extremely hard and efficiently. Left us with no mess and even drained the water out of holes in our living room. So for the first time in 48hrs we don't have water dripping down.
Thank you so much!
Jay has been great and we thoroughly recommend him for his excellent work and professionalism. He's just replaced our ancient, unsafe boiler - within 24 hours of an initial call out! He and Dave worked so hard and were polite, professional and friendly - they did a great job! Thanks so much, can't recommend enough and will 100% use you again as our "go to" plumbers!
