My husband installed a watts recirc pump on our hot water heater waterline. Because it was hard plumbed we had to cut out some of the pipe and fittings ard replumb it. We soldered and replaced tubing including a t and the solder side of a few female connectors. For part of the replumb in tbe water line we used a braided hose because of a hard angle to solder. We got it a pu t back tovether and there were no leaks. On the top of the line there is an air hammer sound buffer. The master shower has low pressure and is the furthest faucet. There iz also ztill noise in the lines. What can we do to fix water pressure to showe?
Thanks

Is it low pressure all the time with the circulator on or off? Is it the hot water, cold or both?

The pump is at the water heater and a comfort valve pipe is at the bathroom sink near this shower?

Close the stop valves at the comfort valve to eliminate the valve. Then try the water in try the shower. Of it is still low, something at the pump is the cause.

Any other fixture experiencing low pressure?

Can you post pictures?

Was the pressure at the master shower low before the recirc work or only after?

What is the return path for the recirculation?

You really need to post photos of all the work that was done.
