Default poor hot water flow
Model Number: phase 111 hl   Brand: -brand-   Age: More than 10 years

I have a phase 111 hot water tank with a stainless steel liner hooked up to my smith oil furnace. I have been having low hot water flow for a while and was wondering if anyone had this same hot water problem and a possible fix. It is 20 years old and I have a well. My thoughts are that the dip tube could be clogged or I have a large build up of scale on bottom of tank. This tank does not have a bottom drain but in the diagram shows a cold water inlet siphon to drain the tank. Mine has nothing installed and has never been drained. Could this be clogged so bad it is restricting the flow??

After much worrying I attacked the problem myself. i couldn't get a plumber to even make an appointment. Whats that all about. Doesn't anyone want to work anymore. Any way, it turned out to be a plugged hot water outlet on the tank. It was so plugged I couldn't even get a piece of brazing wire to go through the 3/4 outlet pipe. I ended up getting it opened to 1/2 inch and now have a great water flow. Hope this helps someone in the future.
