Please Help- No water in shower
Just replaced some pipes in the tub and now I have no water pressure. Please help us problem solve this- because we are completely lost as to what happened when it worked fine earlier this morning with the old pipes (which NEEDED replacing)

Were the old pipes by any chance severely corroded? If so it is possible that some of that corrosion broke off and plugged the mixing valve. Is there ANY water coming out?

Exactly what pipes did you replace? And by "no pressure" do you mean a dribble of water comes out, or do you mean that the shower is bone-dry.

would it be just your facuet exhaust opening got corded... it happens to us once, when I try to change some pipes in the basement, I put some bread to absorb water before solidering... these breads end up cord up my facet upstair when I turn back on the switch... I end up change the facet, but I think I should have open it up and clear things out instead before going to that extreme....
