Plumber Notes: Removed back access panel on both shower units and found that they had used a Stainless Steel Braided hose to make the main water connections, which had become linked and restricted water flow. After removing hose and un-kinking it, I was able to reinstall the hose and notice a significant pressure differential. Because there is still a significant pressure change between the main water line, and the shower when it was hooked up, I took apart the unit further and found that there are flow restrictors inside the unit at both the spout and showerhead. After ensuring that both restrictors were freed of debris, I was able to return both units to normal manufacturer operations specs. Both units are designed to operate at a lower water pressure to prevent overuse, but pressure shouldn't drop any more than what it is currently set at. There is no applicable warranty on work performed today, as it was mainly a diagnostic job.
