New mixing valve


Chris Clouthier -------------------------------------
I installed a new mixing valve and have less water pressure than before I replaced it. The water pressure in thehouse is great so I dont understand what the problem is. The integral stops are open all the way. Any suggestions?

For a shower they restrict flow by their sizing for flow for what I have seen.

Remove the flow restrictor. It's usually a disk with a small hole. You may have to drill it out if it's integral to the device.
