Okay: 2nd floor bathroom of 1939 colonial; galvanized pipes...yes....they are pretty calcified; water gets to 2nd floor just fine; problem is at tub; cannot get water to come out of shower or spigot; worked fine; shower pressure slowed and was lost in a day; removed hardware; when valve stems are removed; water blasts on out of hot line and cold line...great pressure; once valves are installed, nothing from spigot. From the access panel on 2n floor; can we cut the pipes, replace with new lines in that isolated location? Not enough funds to abandon and re-pipe.....thanks! Oh, sink works great too as well as toilet...excellent pressure....once we do this, will we screw up everything? We are going to move and will set up escrow to replace that area permanently; we want it for "move in condition" purposes.

Thanks a bunch!
