I have a couple of rads that are sluggish. The radiators are clean and I
have found that there is a good flow of water out of the return tail - but a
very sluggish flow out of the Flow tail when things are opened up.
Is it possible that the manifold could be sludged up? Alternatively I am
thinking a pipe may have become crushed somehow. It was once working well.
The system always has Fernox in it. I have even tried blasting mains water
back up the flow pipe in case there was an air lock.
As it is 2 / 3 radiators I am hoping to find a common cause.
had the same prob on home system! fernox was in the system but rus
build up still happened. pipe work blocked, as you have poor flow o
three rads yes check manifold. also try sentinal x400 cleaner or ferno
cleaner leave in system and see if that helps flow. if not chec
manifold end also you can insert solder wire in pipe to check fo
blockage. if still no go then sorry but repipe
