In Response To: plumbing (Mike Flanders)

Your problem may not be pressure but volume. If it has been several years since any work has been done on your plumbing, you probably broke some mineral scale loose and it has gotten lodged in the new fixture. New fixtures have restrictors so they will use less water.Personally I don't know who's business it is how much water you or I use but that's the trend. Take the new fixture loose and inspect it for pieces of mineral scale. You might take it out to the shop and blow a blast of compressed air backwards through it. If it is mineral scale it could be as big as a small gravel and just as hard so blow it in a direction away from your face. Good luck.
