Hi Andy,

Basically, no you can't. Not that there would be much point anyway as any crud getting into a Boilermate will just settle to the bottom and do no harm.

Nothing to stop you disconnecting and powerflushing the radiator circuit(s) though if they are clogged with corrosion deposits.

Cheers, Mike

Moving on a few years from your reply here Mike...
The Boilermate 2000 we are speaking about here was new with the house built in 2004.

Unfortunately we've a major issue with Crud buildup within this unit.
On checking the F & E Cistern we discovered a lot of Crud in the water and a blocked ballcock - Now washed & working!

We removed the copper pipes from the cistern down to the topside of the Boilermate to discover both the cold feed/expansion & safety open vent were clarted up with Crud.
We cleaned both of these pipes but were unable to clean the pipes downward from the compression fitting into the Boilermate.

There is a build up on the inside of both these pipes and the vent appeared blocked on testing until we fed a flexible steel coiled cable down as far as possible - which was down 4 or 5 inches around an elbow and on again another 4 or 5 inches to where the cable would go no further.

It is obvious this unit does need the corrosion cleansing from it either by Powerflushing or another method which brings us to the original poster, Andy's question... What would you advise is the correct procedure to do this please?

Thanks in anticipation,
Marshal ;-)
