AS shower has low hot water pressure

jvmagicMarch 23, 2012

Hi, 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.

The nozzles on the showerhead may be clogged with mineral deposits. Take off the showerhead and run the water to see if you have adequate hot water flow. If so, either try to clean out the orifices with a needle, or just buy a new showerhead.
