In the new bathroom, we installed a single sink, Jacuzzi tub, and shower with two outlets, a hand held body wash, and showerhead. When we open the tub valve and the both shower valves, we get water from all but the hand held shower outlet.
I went under the house to check the shut off valves where the plumber tied into the existing system to make sure they were completely in the open position. I found that the plumber tied the new bathroom ¬æ‚Äù hot water line to the existing ¬æ‚Äù line from the hot water heater but tied the new ¬æ‚Äù cold water line to an existing ¬Ω‚Äù line.
Is this a correct installation or the cause of the problem I mentioned, (no water from the hand held body wash)?
I should note that before we had this work done, we lost some water pressure when we opened two or more outlets at the same time. This was not a dramatic loss of pressure but enough to notice.
Sorry for the long winded description but here is some additional information that may help in answering my question.
¬∑ Our plumber told us the new fixtures we had him install were ¬Ω‚Äù valves. (We did not know this until after we bought them. Our plumber also told us we would not see a reduction in water pressure, just that they would be slower to fill the tub).
¬∑ The well is about 200 feet away from the equipment in the garage.
¬∑ There is a slight upwards grade from the well to the house.
¬∑ There is a Collagen Gold Water Softener install in the system.
¬∑ There is a Big Blue 20‚Äù water filter installed in the system with a 10-micron filter.
Any ideas what the problem is?
