Yes, try changing the shower head and do not get one of those water saver heads...and even if you get a regular one take out the flow restrictor before installing it if it has one....it will be just inside the thread part and wil be a plastic or rubber piece with a small hole in it to slow down the water flow...

Had the same problem shortly after new installation of shower in guest bath which is rarely used. I took off the shower head and found tiny rock like sediment. I think from installation of new main shut off done after shower installation. Cleaned junk off and pressure is great. Hope your solution is as simple as mine.

Hot water pressure is weak. Shower head isn't clogged. Cold water pressure is good. How do I increase the hot water pressure?


Is the hot water pressure good at other fixtures in the house? I'm guessing your newer valves have a scolding adjustment that is set very low. Check the instructions that came with the valve assembly.

If your problem is low pressure, your best bet is a pump. not sure if you can get them where you are. Are you in the USA?

Not enough pressure


I would suggest not enough pressure. If the hand shower is connected to the taps then pressure would be the problem as the water comes from the tank in the loft fed by gravity. Solution is a power shower.

Can this diverter run both the shower head and a hand held shower.


This unit will allow the function of the shower head or the hand held shower individually. You can make both operate at the same time but the performance will be dismall at best.

Price Pfister Shower--No water to shower


Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?

Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?

It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled

Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?

Good luck

Just installed shower and faucet in bath tub when you turn the water on the water comes out of the faucet and shower head. When you pull the lever for just the shower the water cuts off at faucet and comes...


Verify the height from the shower valve to the Shower head, the instructions specify the correct distance if it is too short the pressure could be getting up to the shower head.

Perhaps the water pressure it too high at the valve not allowing all the water down the faucet outlet, there are set screws on the sides of the shower valve to adjust the water allowed in the mixing chamber.

Something is restricting the water flow to the faucet, creating enough pressure to send some of the ater supply up to the shower.

I hope some of these ideas help

Not enough hot water


The screws remove the handle. After the handle is removed their are little plastic like gears to limit th ehot watr. Relocate the gear ring for more hot water.

Our Aqualisa power shower lacks water pressure power


more than likely you have some debris near the shower head

take an adjustible wrench( crescent or channel lock
wrap a rag around the eustaceon( chrome tube coming out of shower wall srap around tube to protect the chrome hold it firmly with vicegrips or channel locks, take adjustible wrench or chanel locks and remove the chrome nut holding the shower head on to the eustaceon(turn counter cockwise be careful not to drop the tools that wil damage the tile or fiberglass

after removing showerhead

turn on shower to force and debris out and place shwoer head into stream of water to clean out any deposits the head may have some type of screen to strain the water

this should work if the flow has not incresed then there is a need to adjust the flow valve at the control

to reinstall the shower head reverse procedure

if you have any teflon tape wrap it around the threaded portion of the eustaceon

good luck

hoe this works
