Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.
If you have a water softener then that is the likely source of these "crystals" and also the likely cause of the pressure problem. It's also an indication that the softener has failed. You may have to cut the piping in several places to flush them out.
