no shower water pressure-just a trickle

I can hear pipe sounds but a little water trickled out-no pressure. This is a shower only-no faucet.

Cool

Remove the showerhead and clean it out. Soak it in vinegar overnight if it has white mineral deposits clogging it.
Try the pressure without the showerhead on, to see is that is the problem.
Good Luck!
Mike

We tried removing the shower head-the water just trickles out of the pipe.

The next thing to check are the stems or the stem for debris and rust... Turn the water off to the house, take off the handle(s), remove the stems and check the valve for anything that doesn't belong...

Is there a quick explanation on how to do that?

Also...someone mentioned it could be a bad cartridge.
