If you remove the shower valve and turn on your water supply, does water come out at the same rate for hot and cold.

Your water heater does not need to be on for water to pass through.

Do you have good hot water pressure in the sink or the kitchen?

: Recently I did replace the whole water supply line using galvanized pipes,when I test my pipes for leaks at the shower valve, there was no pressure at the hot side, however at the cold side my pressure was fine,I'm wondering if the water heater has to be on to built pressure or if my problem was that I use too many elbows and of couple of tight turns thus reducing my pressure,or what else could be wrong, I appreciate your help in this matter,Thank you. Hope you have any ideas. Jose R.
