Reduced hot water pressure

Sis is complaining that all of her hot water faucets in the house have reduced pressure all of a sudden. She has a generic gas 50 gallon tank about 10 years old. She tried closing and opening the valve and also draining a bit. I'm going over tomorrow, suggestions that I look at? Disconnect supply & hot pipes to see if crud is blocking the male fittings? (that sounds like work )

    There could be....

    junk from a broken anode rod in the tank or a disintegrated dip tube that worked in the piping. Check aerators and seats.
