I take it that the boiler has been working ok?
When was the last time it was serviced and the gas pressure checked?
It sounds like not enough gas it is behaving normally but just not getting hot enough.
If the gas pressure is ok then perhaps the heat exchanger is scaled up internally.
There could also be a circulation problem, but that would tie up with the theory that the water quality is poor and is possibly blocking the heat exchanger
