    I'm having trouble with my hot water supply. When a hot water tap is turned on I get a low flow of water and then the pressure increases. On occasion, the hot water flow quits completely. When this happens I've had success throttleing the pressure regulator shutoff valve to clear the blockage. When the blockage clears strange banging noises can be heard in the pipes.

    I suspect a hot water heater may be in my near future. Any suggestions as to the cause and remedy to the problem? I've googled hot water heater trouble shooting to no avail.

    Thanks, Robert

    May want to try a reverse flush and replace the anti-corrosion rod.
