Unhappy Low Hot Water Pressure

Well this seems to be an ongoing issue. When my wife and I moved into our new "old" house we weren't getting any hot water to our upstairs bath tub. Ragnar help us with that issue. (Thanks Ragnar!) However, we still have an issue of low water pressure in that same line. The pressure is VERY LOW. Help please??...

Thanks All!

Do you know if that hot water line is old galvanized pipe or not?

Well, from what I can tell, it's actually a combination of old galvenized with copper on some places.

Cool

Old galvanized scales up inside until it eventually clogs up completely. The only solution is to replace it.
Can you use CPVC plastic there? Check with your Building Inspection Department for code.

Good Luck!
