The Best Radiator Flush in Town!

This is one of the most basic aspects of radiator maintenance, it needs to be done regularly to ensure that there are no clogs or blockages that can cause your engine to overheat through loss of efficient cooling.

Why do I need a radiator flush?

All radiators need a flush – there are whole companies based around central heating radiator flush services for houses even!

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a house, a tractor, or a BMW radiator flush services should be rendered regularly to ensure the ongoing health and effectiveness of your cooling system.

Through normal usage a radiator will pump coolant around the engine hundreds of thousands of times, through this process the coolant can change in nature, creating coolant sludge, chemical reactions can occur between the metal and the liquid causing lime and scale.

Regardless of if you have a copper or aluminium radiator flush services are important for the longevity of your radiator and the engine it cools.

What are the best radiator flush options?

If the decision is made to back flush radiator hoses are disconnected, the radiator cap removed, and the radiator plug removed so as to drain the radiator – only after the engine has been allowed to cool down as working on a warm radiator can be very dangerous.

When this has been done a water supply – either plain but filtered and correctly treated water or a special mixture of radiator cleaning fluid and water – is connected and run through the radiator until the escaping water runs clear.
There are several options on the market that claim to be the best radiator flush fluid, but in our experience, it is best to trust only reputable brands and to have your chosen mechanic do it because using the wrong fluid, leaving it too long, or using too much pressure can do damage or cause a big mess!

In short – the best way to flush a radiator is to have your radiator specialist do it!
