      I have poor hot water pressure in my showers, both on the second floor and in the basement. Could I relativly easily fix this problem on my own?

      If it is just your hot water pressure lacking and these showerbodies are off the same riser I would look for a partially closed valve.

      If the pressure coming out of the H/W tank is good to other fixtures it would be the riser supplying these showers is galvanized piping with lots of internal corrosion.

      Was this a chronic problem or did it start slowly?

      Has anyone performed any work in your home prior to this condition happening?

      It could also be a defective dip tube BUT that would also effect your other hot water applications.

      How is your other faucets working H&C?
