ring tefal customer care line,
A new iron of that type should NOT scale surely?

Dunno if it's ok with your iron but oust mltipurpose descaler worked a treat with my iron. Lived in Leicester then and water is awful. If you don't filter it, the kettle scales up in a week. Have moved now but would still recoment it. Also, my mum's tip is use tesco value bottled water or filtered water in the iron to stop it clogging up in th e first place.
