: : I have a moen faucet in my shower.I turn it on counterclockwise.I have plenty of cold water pressure but when I start to add the hot water the pressure decreases.When the water is finally warm enough to shower in there is not enough pressure to activate the shower.The house is hooked up to a well with a max. pressure of 50 p.s.i. and a low of about 30 p.s.i..I would appreciate any and all suggestions any one might have.Thanks.

: I would remove the cartridge to clean and inspect. It sounds like some sort of blockage on the hot side. Either debries in the cartridge, the valve body, or the pipe from the water heater. Terry

Terry,
I removed the cartridge and found no blockage.Also,the pressure through the rest of the house is fine.I looked for a replacement cartridge but dont find one that looks like mine.Wayne.
