Water Treatment Guide
Not many people realise it, but in order for your central heating system to maintain its high level of efficiency, it needs some good old fashioned TLC. Central Heating systems are prone to damaging effects such as corrosion and lime scale, and an untreated system, can be affected in a variety of ways, including radiator cold spots, where metal oxides have built up inside the radiator, boiler noise, and pump seizure or failure, all of which can result in costly repairs or replacements, and these damages can therefore have a long term affect on your boiler efficiency. Although a boiler is considered highly efficient, if rated in SEDBUK band A or B, without effective water treatment, lime scale and iron oxide deposits could diminish the efficiency of that boiler over time. Therefore, this will affect your CO2 emissions and the overall cost of your fuel bills. That’s why here at PlumbNation we offer you all the products you need in order to protect and look after your system.
Central Heating Protectors (e.g. Fernox F1)
Central Heating Protectors will provide long term protection for domestic central heating systems against internal corrosion and lime scale formation. It is simple and easy to add to your system, either via your feed or expansion tank, or directly into a radiator, depending on the type of system you have. It is important to determine the correct dosage before application.
Central Heating Cleaners (e.g. Fernox F3)
Central Heating Cleaners are neutral cleansers that are designed to remove all debris, sludge and scale from existing systems, and can therefore restore energy efficiency and reduce boiler noise. Central Heating Cleaners are particularly effective for use with older systems, and can be used in conjunction with a power flushing unit. Like Protectors, they are simple and easy to add to your system, either via your feed and expansion tank, or directly into a radiator, depending on the type of system you have. It is important to determine the correct dosage before application, and follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Central Heating Repair (e.g. Fernox F2/Fernox F4)
As central heating systems are prone to corrosion and lime scale, there are usually indications where you can recognise what’s wrong. For example, if your boiler has lime scale build up, it tends to make a lot of noise, therefore Boiler Noise Silencers are designed to reduce lime scale build up, and improve efficiency.
Some central heating systems can experience small leaks that are sometimes difficult to get to. Leak Sealers however, can be applied to your system and seal most weeps or leaks, without blocking pumps or air vents. This will therefore save you time and money on draining down the system and manually repairing. Leak sealers are also ideal for reducing pressure loss in systems.
