It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

well they should be same size but unless you getting more of one then other then sound like mixing valve is not mixing. do have 3/4 hook up to mixing valve? you only need 1/2" to valve.

well the tank is made of brass and copper. That takes away that it is the unit. It sounds like lime buildup. Now what does happen as water goes into the tank and heats up lime will remain in the tank. Then as time goes buy it then starts to get to heavy and relesase itself and then the clog effect it taking place.
the best thing you can do now is reverse flow water into the tank and wash it out, its call beack washing. Yu can buy some products to put in at first to help break it down and then you get ore out.
With the new whole house units they now install a vakve set that has two way valves so you can backwash the tanks and stay ontop of the lime.
You must be asking where does the linme come from, well it starts at the well where the water department gets there water. then it goes into a filtering system and they use a lime to act as the filter agent then it heads out to the system and coats the pipes all along the way. I have cut 16 inch pipe and there was solid inch of lime caked inside.
I tell many people if yuo looking inside the water system yo would never drink the water. You might want to think about getting a whole house filter system to slow down the kime that geets in.
Thanks so much be safe in all that you do.
