This question is a little like how long is a piece of string? Depending on the water parameters it may be usual for your dam to build calcium deposits. The issue you may have is that once it starts to precipitate you may find it starts growing on itself. I suggest you get your water analysed at a lab and post the results.

Yes and no! To help removing scale try ScaleTec Plus added to your water. I have heard from different sources that it works well over time. It is from McGrayel Corporation, Easy Care Products Division, which is located in Fresno, CA, USA. Their website is www(dot)mcgrayel(dot)com; however, it has had problems every time I’ve checked. I have found this product at a few local pool supply retailers and just today my local Leslie’s. Reportedly it is real good at removing scale with natural chemicals, which are less likely to create other water chemistry problems. Please reply to your post with your solution (especially if you used this product and like/dislike it).
