No hot water pressure in up stairs shower. Cold is fine.


We have 3 showers in our house two of them work fine but the shower upstairs has no water pressure when you turn it on hot. I tried to up the water pressure valve and still no hot water it just drizzels? Help!?!?

Is this a single handle shower valve? Probably need to replace the cartridge. If it's just the hot side of a double handle, pull the stem and flush it out. (either way, blocked with debris)

What do you mean by "tried to up the water pressure valve"? If you're talking about the PRV Pressure Reducing Valve, you'll need to make sure it's properly re-adjusted. Should be regulating pressure at absolutely no more than 80 PSI. 75 is ideal.
