Not sure what the tap water is like where you are, but in the UK it's variable - most of northern Scotland is very pure but the the south of England there seems to be a lot of calcium in the water. One tip I picked up from the Triumph motorcycle manuals is to use de ionised water along with a good brand of anti freeze - I have never had any issues with gunned up cooling systems. Early Triumph modular 3 and 4 cylinder engines were aluminium block, cast iron wet liner, 4 valve per cylinder with brass radiators - sound familiar?
