Professional boiler cleaning in London

The importance of descaling the boiler

 

The boiler requiresĀ  constant care. It is especially important for the efficient operation of the unit to regularly (at least once a year) carry out its descaling.

After 3 or 4 months of operation on a tubular electric heater of the boiler settles 2-3 mm of lime sediment, due to the low quality of the water supplied to the apartment. This means that a fifth of the energy is wasted.
With each next month, the thickness of the scale layer increases many times. It forms an insulating shell that is harmful to the device, and after a year of operation, the unit will have to strain hard to heat the same amount of water to the same temperature. If you do not take measures to remove the scale, the electric heater may fail due to overheating.

In addition, microorganisms harmful to the human can settle in a dirty boiler tank. Using contaminated water is dangerous.

There is only one conclusion: cleaning the water heater is the main procedure for its maintenance, and a necessary condition for maintaining the health of both the user and the device itself.

Service of the boiler, including its cleaning, should be carried out by certified specialists who know how to clean the boiler from scale and other dirt.

Indications for cleaning

  • hissing or whistling is heard during its operation;
  • increased energy consumption for water heating;
  • There is clouding of hot water or the acquisition of a yellowish tint;
  • increases the time of heating water;
  • more often than before, the device turns off and on.

Flush the heater without disassembling

If there is no way to disassemble the unit or its owner is sure that the boiler is not very dirty, it is possible to clean boiler without disassembling it. In this case, the operation is performed as follows:

  1. Turn off the cold water supply tap.
  2. Disconnect the pipe from which the cold water flows from the boiler.
  3. Drain two-thirds of the heated liquid from the device by opening the hot water tap on the nearest mixer.
  4. Pour cleaning agent into the water tank.
  5. Hold the product in the tank for up to a day, then drain it and rinse the container with clean water.

Complete cleaning of the boiler must be carried out by a professional plumber using specialized cleaning products.

Prevention of frequent pollution

It is clear that the process of cleaning the boiler from scale does not bring much pleasure. To carry out this procedure as rarely as possible, you should adhere to such recommendations:

  • install a filter that cleans water from mechanical impurities entering the boiler;
  • apply water softening filters;
  • heat water to the minimum required temperature (periodically raising it to the maximum for disinfection of the boiler);
  • When planning to purchase a new electric heater, give preference to a model in which a dry electric heater is built-in
