Franke Tank - slow water

Hi, my Franke tap is slow. I have tried it without the filter, ensured that the valves are open and pipes not kinked, and checked flow before tap is also slow.

It got even slower after the filter was changed, but as per above have eliminated the filter, and also note others have observed different flow rates just after changing the filter.

I am thinking its scaled up inside. Franke suggest running some acid through other models, but not this one (Minerva)

Can anyone think of any options for repair? What would be the problem with running some descaler through it? If I run out of ideas I am going to try that. But does anyone have any better suggestion? I am qualified to work on unvented so should be able to keep safe.
