water pressure

I have a small home with one floor and a basement. The water pressure in my shower starts out strong then weaken to a crawl. Both hot and cold. All other faucets are fine. I replace my tank 2 years ago. Is this a tank problem?.or am I looking in the wrong place?

Welcome to the forums! It can be several things. What type mixer do you have? Can you post a picture of the mixing valve with the cover removed if it is a single lever control? It can be pressure balance out of kilter or crud in the lines. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html
