I have started to notice white deposits coming from all faucets in my house (calcium I believe). In addition, the kitchen faucets water flow slowly diminishes. Upon removal of the faucet handle, I found that these deposits are clogging the holes in the faucet.
My question is where are these coming from? I have an electric hot water heater. I have never drained the heater in the 6 years in the house.
Could getting rid of these deposits be as simple as draining the heater?
