Flatpak installation has (nearly) filled up my disk.

I had 10GB of space on my system partition. I attempted to install Flatpak and it nearly filled up my system partition (it left 1/2GB), then abhorted saying there was only 500Mb left. It did the same when I tried it on a previous OS. I now have a (nearly) full system partition and still no Flapak. How can I remove the junk without having to reinstall Linux?

If all else fails I could reinstall the system, then reinstall FP with the parameter which installs it on my /home partition, but it might do exactly the same, so I am reluctant to try it.
