Iím thinking youíre right about the calcium chunks. I removed an access panel inside of one of my cabinets to gain access to the back side of the water heater. I was handling the pex piping and other hoses to try to figure out how the heater was plumbed. I was about to give up, but then tried running the hot water in the kitchen again and all of a sudden I had hot water again. The only thing I can figure out is that moving/jiggling the plumbing lines must have dislodged the clog.

Anyway, weíre back in business. Thanks for the replies.
