Washroom Tub/Shower Combo Low Water Pressure

hey there have low pressure coming from my tub. I checked my sink and the entire house itís just localized to my tub. It has a changing design so I can switch it from the handheld to shower head to faucet and all exert the same low pressure. Looks like itís running about 10% compared to what it used to.

You likely have debris caught in the inlets of the control valve. I would shut down the water to the fixture, disassemble the control and clean out the inlets, check the innards for rust or junk, flush the supply lines if you can and then reassemble.

You may also have a screen on the end of the handspray hose. You could also have junk caught there. It also appears that you have an aerator screen on the tip of the tub spout. Unscrew that and check it as well.
