Update on low water pressure in shower

Thanks for all your help with my problem that I posted yesterday:

]url]http://forums.macresource.com/read/1/43495[/url]

After removing the shower head, water still flows very weakly from the pipe that the shower head was attached to. It takes about 20 second for water to start flowing from the pipe, although it comes on immediately from the tub.

Now that I removed the diverter and all of its parts, water shoots out of there at pretty high pressure when I turn the spigots on.

I haven't noticed any leaking in the wall or in the room below, so I doubt that the pipe is damaged in any way.

I'm going to replace the converter valve if I can, and then I plan on flushing the pipe leading from the converter to the shower.

Sounds like a new diverter should be the answer.





I suffer from the same sensitivity that you do. A few nuggets of wisdom were shared with me and I'm "trying" to incorporate them into my life. First, remember that nobody can hurt your feelings unless you let them. You can always reject what is being forced on you emotionally.
Second, nothing changes unless you change it. If you don't want the behavior to be repeated then you need to take action. Otherwise the kid has learned that his behavior is the way to get things done, because everyone lets him get away with it.
In the meantime I sympathize because I've been there.
