ADEY declares two ‘sludge’ winners

Published:  28 March, 2014

ADEY Professional Heating Solutions has recently announced two new winners of its #ShowUsYourSludge competition.

Hosted on the company’s Facebook and Twitter pages, the competition has attracted hundreds of installers to share their experiences of the black iron oxide sludge collected by ADEY’s MagnaClean filters and MagnaCleanse system flushing process.

Installers Steve Locke from Peace of Mind Plumbing in Boston, and Darran Thomas from Integral UK in Glamorgan, win one of ADEY’s new MagnaClean Professional2 filter and chemical packs.

Mr Locke said: “I’ve followed ADEY on Facebook for some time now and have seen other installers posting some great photos of magnets covered in sludge, so thought I’d share some of the results I’ve seen myself. It’s really surprising, particularly for customers, to see the level of sludge floating around their heating systems, and just how much MagnaClean filters can collect.”

ADEY marketing director Haimish Mead said: “We started running the competition last year to reveal the state of the nation’s central heating systems and just how much sludge can be collected by our filters. Each time we ask installers to show us their sludge, we’re overwhelmed by the response.

“The winning photos from Steve and Darran also serve as a good reminder of the importance of regular central heating system maintenance and it’s great to see MagnaClean and MagnaCleanse helping to keep heating systems clean throughout the UK.”
