Read up on "powerflushing"....

With microbore you'll need to work a bit harder to get it to flush properly as the pipes create a much higher resistance and of course, trap more sludge and debris as it travels around the system.

Once power flushed and cleaned, try having a Magna Clean or a Fernox Boiler Buddy fitted, this should reduce the risk of the sludge reforming
