In response to Re: Low water pressure to one line of one bathroom fixture
: We have recently remodeled our bathroom. As part of the rennovation, new copper pipe was installed throughout the bathroom. We have a shower stall, pedestal sink, toilet, and tub.

: Water pressure is fine at all fixtures, except for the cold water to the tub. It is a trickle. Hot water pressure is great.

: Any thoughts on what could be wrong?? Thanks.

Tell us more about your tub valve--make, model, how many handles, pressure balance.
My first guess and the first thing I would check would be debris in the valve itself. This consists of turning off the water, and removing the stem, cartridge, ceramic disc (whatever you have). Turn the water on to flush everything out. If you do not have water when you flush the line, the problem is downstream from there and you just have to work backwards. Pressure balance valves need pressure on both the hot and cold side for either to work.
