: : Hello,

: : My name is gary. One of my tile customers has a problem with her shower in which the cold water works fine but put it on hot and the water barely comes out. I put in a new cartridge for her thinking maybe it was just old, but the same thing is still happening. Does she need to have a plumber come and change the pipes or could there be another explanation?

: : Thanks for your help.

: Did you flush the lines? Is this a pressure balance with a balance spool?

I did flush the pipes and at that time the hot water was definately not as strong as the cold but it did not seem that bad, however the water barely trickles out of shower head. The valve is just an old original the cartridge just a simple skinny thing with left/right holes.
