thoroughly as possible. Heating system components are made from mostly Iron and steel, there
will always be corrosion debris on metal surfaces and subsequently in system circulation. In

can leave deposits on systems components. Small amounts of corrosion debris may be present
in system after the powerflush as a consequence of ;
A. System components such as heat exchangers, diverter valves, thermistors, pumps, air
vents/separators, pressure vessels. PRV's, cold feed pipes, motorised valves, TRV's, filling loops
etc. Powerflushing may not remove all debris due to condition, design and positioning of these
