I had previously removed aerators to check flow and did so again after your suggestion; still restricted flow of hot water only. The restricted hot water flow is growing worse over time, which to me indicates a build up of some sort of restriction within the line. I’ll have to get a pressure guage and do as suggested.

Is it probable that the heater is the problem or is it more probable that the problem is in the copper pipes?
