Hard water - lime scale residue 2 months 2 days ago #1507

Hi folks, I’m after trading up my camper van to a Fiat Ducato Mohican, it’s a 2003. The guy I bought it off lives in Dublin where his water is very hard and he suffered a lot with limescale causing problems with the water pump and filter. 
My water supply here in Kildare is much softer so I have flushed out the system a number of times now, but I’m just wary as to residual limescale. 
I know white vinegar solution is very good To break down the calcium carbonate and I was wondering about making up a solution and leaving it sit for 24 hours and then flushing out. I think the fresh water tank is either 100 or 150 L just going on the time it takes to fill it.
Any suggestions or comments greatly welcomed.

would there be any harm in dropping a couple of Calgon tablets in and letting them sit for 24/48hrs?
if it cant be fixed with a hammer, its an electrical fault......
