    Hello

    I was wondering if some can kindly advise.

    I need to get my TRVs changed as the pins are not coming up once its pushed down.

    Whilst getting the plumber to change the valves, I am considering to clean the system as well (I have not seen any dark water or anything but as the radiators are about 10 yrs old, I am thinking prevention is better than cure.

    I was thinking to get the Fernox TF3 cleaner & Fernox TF1 Inhibitor added to the system

    The plan is

    1. Drain the CH System & add Fernox TF3 cleaner to the system re-fill and let it run for an hour or so and re-drain the CH system.

    (Wondering if I have to get the CH system power flushed?)

    2. Add the Fernox TF1 protector for peace of mind and refill the system.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bineet
