The fat bottom part of that tap should unscrew from the wand, and has a screen inside that can get clogged. It probably has no flats to get a wrench on so must be unscrewed by hand. Now that yours is flowing you're probably OK if you can't get it unscrewed.

If that works out it would do a nice job of solving both your scale and your chloride corrosion issues.

Thanks, I will take a look. The tap is clean, I did clean that when I was troubleshooting the wand itself!

WLL said using distilled water acts as a solvent and will dissolve or eat into metals. Is that true?
