Different locations low hot water pressure
Low Pressure inside house
I have similar problem yet with a strange twist.Cold water in Kitchen,vanity,bathtub and outside hose bib are just fine.
Clothes washer works like a champ.
Kitchen sink single control handle goes great cold yet when moved to the right, hot water has trickle flow.Vanity has good pressure.Bathtub mediocre flow.
Question: Why only some and not all ?
I have checked drain spigot at base of water heater.I made sure that all supply valves were open ( lefty loosey ).

At wits end

The problem is not in the main lines. It is in the branch lines,shut off's or possibly the fixture itself. What you describe is a combination of separate problems not just one problem.
