Showers

Question Answer
Do you need to replace a shower valve if you only want to change the exterior fixture? no, you can buy a new shower head and install it. but if you want to change the controls you will probably have to buy a new unit. It is sometimes possible to cross reference the parts to see if they will fit. If you can do this, you might be able to change the handle without changing the controls

How do you increase water pressure to shower?

1- Check the shower head for restrictions such as

2- mineral deposits /flow restrictor

3- If you have a pressure / temperature protection type of shower body like a Moen or Monitor series of Delta shower body this can also cause a severe flow restriction.
