Alternatively, Vitcas® System Cleaner can be added via a partially drained radiator. It is still necessary to drain and refill after the recommended period in step 5.

Application for Concentrate

Disperses sludge, limescale and system debris. Restores circulation and improves heating efficiency. 1 tube treats 100 litres. (approx. 10 standard radiators)

The concentrate is added to a radiator using the supplied adaptor and a cartridge gun. Close both valves on the radiator and remove the bleed screw using a radiator vent key. Push and turn the adaptor clockwise into the opening to make a tight fit. If necessary, trim the end of the plastic adaptor with a craft knife. Open the cartridge by cutting off the domed end and connect the adaptor. Open one valve of the radiator and using a cartridge gun inject the whole contents of the cartridge into the radiator. Then close the valve again to remove the adaptor and replace the bleed screw. Finally open both of the radiator valves. After using this treatment the radiators should be bled to remove trapped air. Then circulate under normal operation as follows:

Fast Cleanse (New Components)  2 hours (Hot)
New System                              2 weeks
Previously Treated                      3 weeks
Old System                                4 weeksAfter this period the entire system should be flushed until the water runs clear.
