I want to ensure that we do sometghing to counteract hard water.

Your choices are limited to a water softener for where it really makes
a difference or accepting a reduced lifetime of kettle elements and
immersion heaters. It depends just how hard the water really is.

We have a water softener. The primary reason is to make cleaning the
shower room cubicle glass and tiles easier and less frequent.

It doesn't remove 100% of the limescale, but it does improve things

We still have a hard water tap for drinking water, and filling the
kettle etc, I didn't think drinking softened water is a 'long term' good
idea ?
It certainly tastes crap.
