I have low water pressure in one shower. I know it is not the showerhead. It has gotten progressively worse over a period of a year. I have cooper pipes. Any ideas?

How do you know it's not the shower head?

Because the water for the bathtub comes out a little bit slower also, not as bad as the showerhead though. And when I direct the water to the showerhead for about split second it comes out normal and then slows down. I'am a novice here but, I have taken the showerhead apart and inspected it and nothing apeared wrong to me. I also washed about 3or4 times in clr and there was no difference. I don't know, it could be the showerhead but I get the feeling its the pressure.

Conduct an experiment. Remove the shower head completely, and with the shower head off, turn on the shower. That should implicate or vindicate the shower head once and for all.
