What have you been running in it - coolant/water mixture? Where did the water come from? Water quality issues caused that.

Looks like the drinkable tap water in Sweden is harder (more minerals) than your system can handle. I would mix the coolant with purified/distilled water to avoid calcification in the future. Save the tap water for mixing drinks .
