Did you say that someone quoted £500 to replace pump and power flush system ? if that's so you need to get him round asap, You need to find out if you are in a HARD WATER AREA, as you may need to add extra chemicals to treat system.
    Sorry mate, I responded to that above, but not clearly enough. Yes I am in a hard water area.
    After balancing the radiators the house is much warmer, I would say every rad is very hot for the top 2/3rds, the bottom reasonably hot. The best way I can describe this is they are barely touchable at the top but you can hold your hand on them at the bottom, but still hot.
    So perhaps thats not too far being reasonably efficient, but still needs some longer term remedy.

    Right now perhaps I need to concentrate on sorting the boiler
    (see video link).
    I think the first step has to be to try and replace the CH pump.

    Kev you have been told what to do mate your magna clean will catch any debris on its way back to the boiler but it's not there to clean the whole system out , drain down get your Adey m+3 cleaner in the system if that what you want to use and let the system run with the old pump for a week , drain and flush out , change the pump now add inhibitor Adey m+1 refill the system and vent out run the boiler job done

    Do NOT take the boiler casing off.

    You need a gsr.
