We only get a limited amount of cold water in our 3rd floor shower along with overall low water pressure. The house is 90 yrs old and the sink and toilet in the same bathroom work fine. The 2nd floor bathroom also is fine. Any ideas?
Have you tried cleaning out or replacing the shower head? They can get clogged with mineral deposits or other gunk.
if this house is 90 yrs. old I'm guessing you have some very old pipes...galvanized pipe clogs from the inside, building up desposits (like cholesterol...hardening of the arteries)...over time the pipe gets completely clogged...or sometimes a piece of this deposit breaks off and gets stuck in a bend in the pipe...thus clogging that line. IF that is the problem, then it is a problem, and a headache/hassle/expense. This does not fall under easy or inexpensive fix. Be prepared to gasp and have your walls torn open.
