Hi Uyehara,

 

Mineral deposits are a common problem in hot water systems, usually clogging faucets and shortening the life of water heaters.

 

I believe the problem in your faucet is mineral deposits in the hot water side of you faucets' cartridge.

 

The simplest solution is to replace the cartridge.

 

Remove the cartridge and take to your local Home Depot.

 

The plumbing associates will assist you in selecting a new replacement cartridge.

 

There also may be deposits in the shutoff for the hot water under your sink.

 

Remove the water supply line and check the shutoff valve for blockage. If the valve has deposits replace it as well.

 

Mike,
