If you've got the original heater, the anode rod is on the back side facing you. If the anode was never changed and the tank drained regularly, you probably have either a ton of gunk in there (best case scenario) or the tank is shot and the pieces are clogging up your water lines.
Not sure I want to believe anything about the hot water side as his is working fine, flows freely and is a separate line leaving the heater. The cold side is the problem.....somewhere past the pump which is common to both and working fine. The faucets are not it as they flow fine with the hot side running. A city water connection has the same problem, eliminate that too. The only thing left is the cold line. Very well could be something in the line and compressed air from the faucet towards a disconnected outlet on the pump may flush it out. Unless there has been a stray valve installed by a PO..........interesting problem<_<.
