I already ran blitz kits (Part 1 & Part 2) through my rads. I also have my own custom standalone flush system I used to clean out as much as possible from the radiators.

@Mayhem I'm now running part 2 through the loop, but I don't see bubbles inside. I did while mixing with deionised water and filling, but I recall that it used to produce lots of bubbles.
I put together a very similar setup to prepare my four new HWLabs SR2 multiports.
Filled with 80C hot water and did radiator dance.
Blitz Part A for 12 hours followed by flushing through with mains water to neutralise the acid. Used one of these pressure reducer doohickeys to avoid the mains pressure blowing out the rads:
Then I followed up with a DI water flush using a bucket, water filter and cheap pond pump setup, similar to you guys. Ran each rad for 8 hours. The amount of crap caught by the filter was amazing. The filter was white, now it's yellow. And I can see loads of macro sized particulates in the filter too.
Next step is to throw some more DI water into those rads, remove it again and check the PH levels.
