Greetings all, looks like a good board, everyone seems real helpful. Here's one that's stumped me and I'm not sure where to start.
My house (hot water heater) is 6 years old (built in 1998). I'm in Utah (SLC) and the water is anything but soft. My hot water was fine at first, but over the years it gotten worse. It's not just in one place (shower, kitchen, etc). Cold pressure is fine. I can have one hot water going (shower, dishwasher, washing machine) and when I turn on another then neither has any good pressure.
I'm assuming my problem lies in the water heater. Perhaps a build up of scale or whatever? Is there any way of clearing this? Or is it now a matter of replacing the water heater? Or am I not looking in the right place? haha, or am I just blowing hot air?
Thanks for any suggestions!
