    Default Leaky Tub Faucet + Low Shower Head Hot Water Pressure

    I hope this finds you all doing well. I am in need of some sage advice. In my downstairs bathroom the hot water pressure is a mere trickle out of the shower arm but is stronger coming out of the faucet, conversely the cold water pressure is strong out of both. Our sinks on this level work fine, including hotwater. This is irrespective of the shower head being on so that’s not the issue. . I have a single handle system (can not find the brand name to look up specs) and when turned to only hot the faucet leaks tremendously but it doesn’t leak nearly as much when turned to the cold settings. Do you all think this points towards a blockage within the valve system—specifically the hot water inlet? Do you all have any suggestions as what to do from a DIY perspective---Honestly I am a total plumbing newb and I am somewhat intimidated about taking the valve apart. Do you think the faucet needs replaced? Thanks again
