I've had an Office Lever Plus for about 3.5 years and it's great. I've never descaled the boiler or had it serviced. I'm noticing over the last few months that a lot more water is trickling out of the little "release valve" when a shot is pulling (as opposed to an occasional trickle). Is that valve failing?

They taste as if the beans are green. Perhaps a general guideline can be given for my particular machine and grinder. Expobar Office Lever Plus and Baratza Vario.
What's the best type of water to use for this machine? (distilled, artesian, deionized, etc.)
