My husband replaced the kitchen faucet. Ever since there has been low hot water pressure in my shower which is closer to the kitchen then then main bathroom. He turned all the water back on, etc. Nothing has changed, so why did this happen and how do we repair this without calling a plumber?

All new fixtures have a water restrictor in them. Manufacturers are required to install them now. My husband was able to remove ours very easily; now we have lots of water pressure. (02/28/2006)
If the cold water works fine and you only have low pressure on the hot side it will not be in the head or aerator. It will be debris in the pipe or in the tub valve. Working in the kitchen with the shutoffs under the sink would not cause this to happen.
You will need to remove the faucet stems and then turn the water back on to flush the system of debris.
Be careful and good luck.
