    Is this a DIY job or must it be done by a CORGI-registered plumber? (Sorry to be a bit thick, but I assume flushing it through means the tank and radiators are cleared of sludge, and the boiler is unaffected apart from the obvious efficiency gain).

    Flushing a vented system through (including the boiler) and cleaning out the radiators can be a DIY job. The only fluids involved are water so no need for a Gas Safe plumber. Likewise, with my old boiler, after ensuring that the system is correctly refilled with water and inhibitor mix, relighting the boiler just involves turning on the gas cöck and pressing the piezo igniter following the instructions printed on the inside of the boiler casing.

    If in doubt, always call in a professional.
