I don't have a clue about plumbing! There's extreme water gushing out of my tub faucet below and barely any water coming out of the shower head above. Is it just a matter of cleaning out the shower head? And if so, how do I do it? What else can I do if this fails? Please help! Thank you!

Try removing the shower head and soaking in a product like lime-away to remove mineral buildup. Re-attach the shower head and see if that helps - if not I'd say you have a problem with a valve that redirects water to the shower.

low pressure in shower head

I had the same problem with my shower head.. I took the shower head off and run water through it to see if there was a problem with the pipping coming from the faucet to the shower head.. There was plenty of water coming out of the shower w/out the head on it... That lead me to the problem being in the shower head itself.. I took a bleach and water mixture and soaked it and it cleared it up...
