Master bathroom shower pressure, weaker every day

The water pressure throughout the house is fine except for my master bath shower. It has been continually getting weaker and weaker for 6 months now. I'm trying to isolate the best starting point to check the lines, as I'm assuming that's where my problem is; maybe a pinched line underneath the house. I live in a manufactured home so I can crawl under the house. I don't think it's clogged. Please Help! Thx in advance, Juls

Have you checked the shower head? Common fof the small orifaces will become partially clogged over time by mineral build up.

I had purchased a new shower head and my husband installed it. It seems to be working fine now. Thx for your reply.

Glad to see you have the problem solved. Not only will certain minerals build up within the strainers in shower heads to cause a decrease in water "volume" and not pressure, but disturbances within municipal water (city) systems will cause very small sand and/or stones to block these filters in shower heads. If you still have the old shower head, take it apart to learn how these filters are installed and can be cleaned and reassembled. Thanks, David
