Dirty central heating systems are more likely to break down, require premature component replacements, and cost homeowners more on their energy bills. To avoid these scenarios, and keep customers happy, Sentinel has created a step-by-step powerflushing video for installers. Best of all, the two-part video not only goes through all of the essential stages of a best practice powerflush – making it the go-to technical resource for powerflushing – but shows installers how to demonstrate the benefits of powerflushing to homeowners for maximum customer satisfaction.
The first part of the video addresses the important topics of how to tell if a system needs a clean – which includes instructions on how to use a turbidity tube – and how to set up a powerflushing machine. This is followed by a second video which is a comprehensive guide to conducting a powerflush, from the first time the machine is switched on, through cleaning each radiator effectively, to the final flush.
To help installers make the most of their time with customers, whether at quoting stage or during the powerflush itself, Sentinel has included a number of practical ideas that can help to win customer confidence. This includes tips on how to use visual aids, such as infrared thermometers and Sentinel’s homeowner leaflets, through to advice on how best to talk to customers about water treatment.
When used as part of Sentinel’s best practice approach of ‘clean, protect, maintain’, powerflushing can help to deliver lifetime protection from corrosion and limescale. To help installers really raise the bar on their water treatment services, the Sentinel video also includes instructions on how to dose Sentinel X100 Inhibitor into the system using the powerflushing machine, as well as how to use a Sentinel X100 Quick Test Kit to check system protection.
The video features Sentinel’s new high performance and easy to operate JetFlush Rapid® machine, which is designed to help installers save time and hassle on the job. Installers can watch the new video, alongside many other how-to and step-by-step guides, by visiting Sentinel’s You Tube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/sentinelperform .
