Low water flow bathtub faucet


Water flow at bathtub faucet has been getting weak, changed the cartridge today and no difference. Water pressure is fine at the bathroom sink, and the toilet.
Oh my faucet is a delta 1400 series. Is there another valve or something inline? Removed cartidge and turned on water and it seemed fine. This does not make any sense, I dont understand how you could get any water through those small holes. Thanks in advance

Low water flow bathtub faucet


Is it only weak at the shower head or also the spout?

If the flow is bad at both shower head and spout you can replace the cartridge and see if that helps. the balancing spool in the cartridge could be bad.
