In response to Re: What is that WHITE stuff clogging things up?
: What is that white calcium looking like stuff (small white flakes/pebbles) that comes from the hot water side and constantly keeps the aereators clogged? It builds up very quickly in all the faucets. Someone said something about something in the hot water heater? The heater is fairly new (less than 5 years), with hard water conditions..........Got me stumped and knucles are getting bloodied trying to keep this stuff out! ***HELP***

: Email please with ideas to: avflyguy@sbcglobal.net

: Thanks :-) Its probably a broken dip tube.Try draining all that crap out of your water heater.You might have to unsrew the drain cock to do it.If that dosent do it you might have to get a new water heater.Good luck Mike
