    It sounds like it may be a single handle faucet. Is it ?

    Yes...when we remodelled the new bathroom we switched to the single handle, not sure it was such a great idea though.

    Most codes require pressure balancing in the shower.

    They only make single handle pressure balanced valves.

    You can get a pressure balancer for the two handle valves, but it adds a lot to the cost.

    Most single handles will have a high limit setting, that can be rotated higher.
    Pull the handle off and see if there is a way to swing the handle farther to the left at the end of the swing.

    If there is less pressure at the head, it would be just that.
    Shower heads are limited to 2.5 gallons a minute.
    The valve may be good for 5 to 8 gallons a minute. The valve is not the problem.

    Peerless® offers value-driven, proven designs that do not sacrifice style. Each faucet is designed to give consumers confidence in their purchase. Every faucet is backed by a Lifetime Faucet and Finish Limited Warranty.
