    so i have a problem with my shower, i'll be taking a normal shower then suddenly the pressure dramatically drops. it happens only in this one shower out of all three other showers and faucets in the house. the house is only about 5 years old. it seems to only happen with hot water. i have normal pressure with cold water. i really need help, i cant stand taking cold showers!!!!

    .
    First, unscrew the showerhead and see if it has a wire mesh filter in the stem, make sure it's cleaned out. If everything else runs fine, this is the first place i would start. You also may want to run it for a ten seconds or so without the head on it, there might be rust or crap in the pipes. If that doesn't work, swap it with another head from another bathroom and see if that changes anything, if it still happens, maybe it's a problem with the shower faucet.
