When you did a descale did you flush it out with water after?

a few times
Expert:  James replied 16 days ago.

Right the taste will be from sludge in the boiler, all you can do is keep descaling or add a stronger descale solution to the water tank and run it through the machine, where that doesn't work a new boiler would be required which would probably not be an economical repair.
