I have really low hot water pressure in the master bathroom. The guest bathroom right next to it has good water pressure. The only thing changed was a water pipe from the wall to the hotwater heater located downstairs. Both of these bathrooms are located upstairs and the water pressure droped after fixing the pipe. The old pipe was copper and fitted to a galvanized pipe and had oxidized badly creating a build up inside the old copper pipe closing it off almost, and I thought that this would make my water pressure increase with a wide open pipe. Does anyone have a clue as to how I can get my water pressure back.

You probably dislodged some 'gunk' from inside an old galvanized pipe which has become lodged in the valves or aerators of your bath.

This may require removing and flushing valves and valve stems or faucet stems and aerators.
