In the four years since we moved here I haven't had to descale the kettle once.
When I moved into this house 30+ years ago,I fitted a 'Lif Limefighter' directly above the rising main.This is just a plastic tube containing a ceramic magnet,with a compression fitting at each end.It cost less than 20, and took about 10 minutes to fit.Despite having hard water here,I don't have to descale the kettle,and my washing machine is now 26 years old,and I've never added anything such as Calgon to prevent scale.
