    I replaced the old Mixette valve with a new Mixette control a few months ago. There doesn't seem to be as much water flow when full open as there used to be. Is this the valve or what? Don't really want to tear out the wall again so maybe aother new valve?

    Take the showerhead off and see if there is anything clogging up the screen.

    Mixette Valve -low flow

    :eek: Thank you Much. I forgot to say that I removed the shower head and then removed the low flow screen so there should be no restriction to the water. I am thinking that I didn't do something correctly when I replaced the valve cartridge.

    Try removing the cartridge and re-installing it.

    If that doesn't work, you may need to get a different type of cartridge:

    OK___ that sounds really good. I will pull the cartridge out and check the operation and re-install. Good to know that there is a replacement available.

    Thank you for the response and possible solution.
