    I would never use my water ram to do it because like Bungie said, it can cause leaks if the pipe has marginal spots in it. But I have capped the shower or faucet that had poor pressure, turned off the hot water heater valve, and then opened a hot water faucet that had good pressure. Then you open both hot and cold water faucets where the cap is and backflush with city pressure. If the pipe is just blocked with rust particles that have accumlated like a log jam, this will dislodge them and restore some pressure. It does not dislodge any rust particles that are sealing potential leaks.
