Water Lines Clogging

I can see this is on older thread, but I have the same exact problem. My problem developded after I had a well tank replaced. The cold water line in one bathroom is cloged with little white particles. I flush them and have good water flow, then in a few minutes the problem returns. I think it is calcium particles that somehow collect in only one cold water line. How to fix it I don't know.

Hi Radios and welcome to the forums. I've moved your post to its own thread. While you're having the same difficulty, it's hard for others to follow the issue when it relates to another poster's question from 8 years ago.

Flushing the lines with the spout filters removed is about the only way to rid the lines of the calcium deposits. Shouldn't take but a few minutes, however.

As for the particular issue you're having, have you taken out the aerators from the faucets and rinsed them out? Even though it may be a water heater issue, the aerators tend to collect the gunk over time and get worse and worse. Do you get good flow once you remove the faucet aerators?
