In response to Re: low pressure
: hi everybody,I just removed some galvanized pipes and

: at my kitchen sink hot and cold,but the bathroom
: with shower that has low pressure on the hot side
: the sink has great pressure on both sides,do I have air
: in the system,if so how do I bleeb it out.thanks

You do not have air in the lines. You most likely have debris in the fixtures that broke loose when you were working on those old nasty galvanized lines. Just FYI-galvanized and copper should never be directly connected together. Remove the aerator on the kitchen sink and see if you have pressure. You will probably have to shut off the water, disassemble the shower valve and flush to get the shower working properly again.
