    The galvanized steel piping in your house needs replacing...
    They rust shut and kill the water volume that can flow through them...

      Like Markts30 said it could be rusted galv. piping and probably is, but it could be something as simple as a partially closed valve.

      Hows the cold water pressure?..same or much better?

      How long has this been happening?..any history with plumbers working there?

      What type of hot water heating system is it exactly?

          Are they galvanized steel pipes, or are they gray plastic pipe or what? Galvanized pipe could react to the chemicals in your water, which may cause it to stink. If you have plastic pipes they should be CPVC pipe. They are white in color. First check to make sure that your supply tubing (flex-hose) from the hot water shut-off valve to your faucet is "kinked." Is it restricted in anyway?
