PowerClean® Flush Tool

The PowerClean® Flush Tool Cleans Engine Cooling Systems Completely and Thoroughly

Improper flushing can ruin a newly installed water pump and result in warranty problems and frustrated customers. Perform a complete cooling system flush by using clean water and compressed air. The PowerClean® Flush Tool “water hammers” accumulated sludge and scale deposits without the use of harsh chemicals or solvents. It cleans radiators, heat exchangers, hoses and engine blocks more effectively than conventional flushes, maintains system integrity and ensures warranty coverage on replacement parts, including water pumps. The patented process uses fixed dimensional control of the air and liquid flow paths to allow air to pressurize the water, creating a pulsating action to scrub deep into corners and crevices and eliminate trapped debris. 

  • Pulsating gun assembly with pre-set regulatorPower Clean Flush Tool
  • Water line backflow preventer
  • Large rubber tip for radiator necks and direct flushing of the engine block
  • Small rubber tip on whip hose for direct access to heater core tube stubs
  • 5/8” and 3/4” heater hose barbs for flushing heater cores or engine blocks
  • Durable protective storage case with room for additional items

  How to Perform a Cooling System Flush

  1. Before working on the cooling system, make sure the engine is at room temperature. Never remove a radiator cap on a hot engine.
  2. Use a large tub to capture any coolant that leaks from the system. 
  3. Flush each component of the system with a garden hose for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Filter the contaminants. 
  5. Use the PowerClean® Flush Tool to remove the additional contaminants not captured by the regular flush procedure.

The cooling system is one of the most critical elements of engine performance and reliability but is often the most neglected maintenance item for vehicles on the road today. Maintenance manuals recommend flushing the cooling system at least once during the warranty period and regularly afterwards to prevent the harmful build-up of contaminants that can clog radiators in heater cores or damage water pumps.

People often avoid cooling system flushes because the warranty period has ended or the end user does not want to pay for the recommended service. Many flushes are performed on the radiator only and don't include the engine block or heater core. 

What Adds to System Contamination Levels? 

  1. Improper coolant pH levels
  2. Use of tap water instead of distilled water
  3. Accidental mixing of different coolant types
  4. Poor understanding of system chemistry by OEMs

What Are the Results of Poor System Maintenance?

  1. Undetected component wear
  2. Reduced engine cooling efficiency
  3. Eventual water-pump failure
