AS shower unit has low hot water pressure

jvmagicMarch 23, 2012


One of my two showers has low hot water pressure. The other shower works perfect.

It's an American Standard single handle unit. Cold water pressure is fine. I had the same issue 3 yrs ago and I believe they shipped a cartridge which did the job. I again received a cartridge and installed it. Hot water pressure is still very low. What gives? What else can I do?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yeah, I would have said there is a clogged line and the cartridge should do the trick.

Not sure what the anatomy of the fixture is, but when you opened it up to swap the cartridge, did you poke around a bit to see if there is any grit or sediment?

It may be worth a second look-see.
