In response to Re: Rheem Water Heater Problem
: I have a 3 yr. old Rheem Water Heater and it recently is putting out a white lime-like substance through the service pipes. This substance plugs up the kitchen faucet (Moen) to the point were water hardly comes out. I had a plumber take the faucet apart and it was totally plugged with this white substance. There is no problem with the cold water side of the system. What & where is this white substance coming from??

Sounds like a bad dip tube, search this site for more info, I think the dip tube thingee is plastic and it falls apart causing the flakes etc to circulate and clog up everything
