If you were intending to use this infernal device with any regularity, then an ion exchange resin plant would seem to make sense. Only problem is storing the sulphuric acid and sodium hydroxide needed to regenerate the resin beds. You could see if the lads at Grain or Kingsnorth would lend you the odd bowser of makeup water (unlikely).

Response from a fake chemist (biochemist) - If you want to descale the coil warm citric acid solution should work without causing too much harm to the innards - to prevent new scale build up Calgon is a proprietary (expensive) solution but good old fashioned washing soda (sodium carbonate) is a cheaper alternative.
