Another Hot Water Pressure Question

My Hot Water, (and Heating ) Is obtained with an Oil fired Boiler.
The water is stored in a Therma-Flow ,everhot, 30gal tank.
Over the last few months the Hot water pressure to all outlets.from the Washer across the Basement, to the bath and shower head upstairs, has decreased dramatically.
Any simple thoughts before I call a Plumber.
Thanks

Is all the pipe in your house copper? Do you have city water or a well? How old is the storage tank?

You should work your way backward from one end of the plumbing system to the other and try to notice where exactly the slow-down begins. It could be before the storage tank and everything after would seem to be affected. Don't overlook any valve that may have been closed and not fully re-opened or in the case of a valve with a washer in it, a broken washer.
