Once the flush is complete, it is essential that a magnaclean Pro 2 filer is left to ensure the system is kept clean, ensuring a flush is never needed again. Many companies flush and leave, meaning within 3 years another full flush is required. By fulling with the correct chemicals and leaving a filter installed, you won’t need to do a flush ever again.
