Do descaler's work ?
I have one attached to the oil boiler but seeing the toilet pans in the house each has a thick layer of scale in the bottom.
I wonder if I should fit a new descaler to the new toilets when I fit them.
Which product would you use ?

Hit and miss really.

Will work in some houses and not others for some reason.

Only way to stop scale is to fit a water softener.

As G4U says a softener is the best way.

If you can't run to that or don't have the space then a Combimate can be used to do the whole house including the kitchen cold supply. This will not get rid of existing scale but will prevent further buildup.

They can be bought online for just over £100 and if you have them fitted with a new combi boiler Combimate will actually pay up to £500 of the cost of a descale if it's ever needed! Assuming it's been serviced regularly of course
