NEED HELP!! Low/No Water Pressure in Bathtub Faucets
Posted by Gary on March 04, 19101 at 02:16:53:
I have a 15 year old house & just recently the cold & hot water pressure to the bathtub spouts have been
drastically reduced to almost a trickle. It takes approximately 1/2 an hour to fill the tub. I have copper pipes
not galvanized, I had a new water heater installed about 4 years ago & haven't had any work done to the
water heater since the installation. I get my water supply from the County not a well. I've replaced the
spouts(faucets) once myself without any success & then I had a plumber replace the spouts, again without
any success. The second plumber inspected the spouts & had no clue as to what was causing the problem.
The pressure to the shower heads are better but less than the rest of the house. And the pressure everywhere
else in the house is fine. The spout is the type that you pull out (towards you) & turns one way for the hot,the
other way for the cold water & you have to pull the diverter up in order for the water to go to the shower head.
Since the pressure is low for both hot,cold & only effects the bathtub spouts & no other faucet/spout in the
house. Does anyone have any ideas of what could be causing this & is there anything I can do besides
tearing down the wall & replacing all the pipes? Any help,suggestions,ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
