Calcium buildup in water lines

I'm beginning to wonder if the line to the toilet is hot water!!!!!

That's great!
In Yuma, the 8K will go a week where the 16K goes 2 weeks. Your results may vary.
Tucson the 16K is about a 3-4 weeks. In PA, it lasts about 3 months.
Water heaters "cook" their own crystals. Flushing it will help. Softener will make things much better
Happy trails!
