I recently replaced an old shower valve with a pressure balanced one. The water pressure is not the same as it was. Is that because its a new restricted - flow valve? I have pulled the cartridge out to see if there is any debris and allowed the water to shoot straight out without the cartridge on. The cold water sprays out much more forcefully than the hot. Is that normal? Any help to get more water pressure.thnks!
