    TOTALLY FRUSTRATED

    SEVERAL MONTH S AGO I STARTED NOTICING MY SHOWER PRESSURE DIMINISHING. WHEN I REMOVED THE SHOWER HEAD I FOUND SEVERAL CHARDS OF WHAT APPEARS TO BE PVC IN THE SHOWER HEAD. I REMOVED THE PARTICLES BUT THEY SEEM TO RE APPEAR ON A REHGULAR BASIS. ONLY SHOWS UP IN MY MASTER BATH SHOWER, I AM TOTALLY CLUE LESS ANY IDEAS ?????

    Hello: You should be thinking “bad dip tube“. That’s the tube under the cold inlet to your tank. It is likely falling apart and winding up in the plumbing. A lot has been written about it here. Check “tanklets” and/or search ‘dip tube’.

    Yours, Larry
