We have a tricky conundrum to start us off. (another kettle!)
Dear J.Bloggs,

I have an old broken electric kettle. I do not think it can be repaired as it is a good 5 years old and it contains so much limescale that its probably doubled in weight! I want to get rid of it, but I don't want to just chuck it in landfill. What can I do?
Kerry, NR5

  1. I believe we used to use a dilution of vinegar to remove scale but had no problems for several years since using Waltham Electronics scale manager. It's a box size of large chocolate bar screwed to wall near mains inlet to interior of house. Runs on 9 volts of minute power consumption and transmits low frequency radiation via wire coiled round water pipe. Incredibly it works! May cost around £200 installed but could save eventual replacement of entire immersion tank .... it actually happened once. Sounds expensive and energy consuming but I believe in it. There's probably a web site for Waltham.
