          It depends on what is causing the pressure loss?

          1-Is it galvanic corrosion?

          2- Is it city pressure/well pressure that needs boosting?

          3-Do you have a partially crushed main or a partially closed valve?

          4- Is it just the shower head full of mineral deposits?

          5- Did you take apart the shower body to ensure that a particle of old washer may be the culprit?

          6- Are your pipes over sized so you get the volume BUT have a severe pressure loss

          7- Are you talking Volume or pressure

          8- Did you put a gauge on the nearest out let to find your actual pressure?

          9- If this is a high rise building is it gravity fed and what floor are you on?

          10-Do you already have a PRV located on the main of your in coming water supply line?

          11-Was this a chronic problem of just lately?

          12-Was any new plumbing added to this system?

          13-Did you bother to check for as flow restrictor inside the actual shower head?
