Low hot water pressure in shower ONLY

Ask a Plumber
I just moved into my condo and for some reason ONLY in my shower do I have low hot water pressure. Other bathroom, faucets etc work perfectly fine. When running cold water the pressure is fine but once I turn the handle all the way for the hot water, very little water comes out. What could be causing this? View more
