System Flush??

Try Rhomar. I think their web site is rhomarwater.com. Great products.


  • 85 year old system

    I have been asked to remove an 85 year old, converted from coal to natural gas, boiler. It is a gravity system with a lot of standing rads and piping. I am wondering how to best flush this system of the years of accumulated sludge and slime that I suspect I will find in the system. What would you use for a cleaning agent and how would you best do it?

    The client is insisting on a W/M Ultra for the replacement, and with the possibility of flow restriction though the heat exchanger from this sludge, I am very concerned about fouling that and/or the pumps. Anyone know of a really good in-line high capacity filter that might work?

    Your collective wisdom will be greatly appreciated.

    I second the Rhomar treatment...

    ... and I raise you by a inline Wye-strainer.

    if you are really into this, after the wye strainer, a Neptune filter feeder with some rare-earth magnets to scavenge stray iron. And on the wye strainer a full-port ball valve in the blow-off tapping to see what you get. Makes a great purge outlet too.
