Had a quick search but couldn't see any similar threads. Thought i would put some pictures up of the hard water and limescale we have to deal with on the Isle of Wight.

Has anyone else got any experiences with bad limescale build up?

When the water is that hard i suppose Brita cartridges dont help much or do they?

I'd guess a miners pick and lamp would help more, or you could watch the Mythbusters episode where they test ways to remove left over concrete from concrete mixer trucks !!!

What machine is that?

 

Its actually two machines, I cant remember the top left tank but the other three are from a wall mounted Zip hydroboil water boiler. We had quite a large amount from a gaggia gd compact last week, I will try and find the pictures.
