Did you have it hooked up to city water line?
Did you have the water pump on if you were using water from your storage tank?
Have you ever unscrewed the shower head to see if the pressure increases and you have a clog in the head?
Have you inspected your water filter to see if it was clogged and needs repalcing?

If you can answer a few questions to see what you have do will help others to answer your question.
Thanks

I replaced my shower head with this type. It works great even with low water pressure from the on board pump. I broke the white trickle valve the day after I installed it. A quick trip to the hardware store got me back in action. I want to add a smaller valve, but this one may not be pretty, it works.

Good stuff Herk I installed the same ball valve about two weeks ago as you said certainly not pretty but it shuts the water off completely just like I wanted.

The Oxygenics shower head is awesome. Almost like your home shower.

The ONLY drawback is they don't shut off completely.

We had pressure issues in our Rockwood even after installing an Oxygenics head. I took the hose that came with the Oxygenics off the faucet end and found a washer that was supposed to have had the center punched out and removed. It had been punched, but the center part was still in place except for one edge. I took the center part out, reattached the hose, and man what a difference! Not sure if the washer came with the Oxygenics hose or the factory hose, but it was certainly restricting water pressure.

That washer is a designed, govt required flow restrictor and back flow preventer. I usually just remove the flapper and enlarge the hole.
