Low water flow to tub

We shock treated our water well and after running fresh water out we began to use our tub again but the water flow from it is poor. There might be debris of some sort in the plumbing from stirring up the well or some part of the shock treatment process, but we have no idea how to loosen it up or deal with it. The water flow from the 2 tubs is so slow, we can barely get a shower out of them. The tubs are both 1 - peice units.

#1 Post a picture of the tub valve from inside the tub so we can get an idea of what brand you have.

The valves going to have to come apart to be clean. Most likly if it's a newer valve the scald valve is stuck because of trash.
