    Yes, it would help a lot with new deposits.

    To remove the old deposits from the water line, consider a pumice stick. [​IMG]

    Phosphoric acid may help remove deposits, but it still may take some scouring.

    Hi,

    Yes , water softener would help to solve this problem. Because a water softener is used to soften water by removing the minerals that cause the water to be hard.
