Still continued to run hot after idling 15+ mins

A couple days ago I noticed I was losing coolant pretty quickly and found a hose had 2 pin holes. Replaced the bad hose and figured I’d do another coolant flush since I wasn’t getting any heat from the vents and one of the heater hoses wasn’t heating up.
So I done another full coolant flush. After the coolant flush I decided to forward & reverse flush the radiator and heater core by their selves. Heater core was full of rust. Now that the whole system is rushing clear distilled water throughout. I filled the system with the appropriate antifreeze and water. Let the truck run idle for 30 minutes. No over heat.
Well today, I’m sitting in a customers driveway doing paper work. After roughly 20 minutes I noticed my temperature was at about 220. I decided to sit and see what it would raise to and after about another 10 mins it got to roughly 230-235 degrees.
Any suggestions or ideas on why I am still running hot?
have the same problem?
