Hey guys, just checking back in hoping there might be a plumber out there who can read this and offer a little advice. I upgraded my downstairs bathtub fixture from a cheap Delta fixture that was only giving me about 2.3gpm which took an eternity to fill the tub to a Jalco dual control fixture that lets you control temperature and volume separately. The rating (if memory serves correctly) is something like 10GPM at 60psi and 6GPM at 25psi or something close to that.

I have 3/4" copper running from the service that then splits off to 1/2" copper into the tub fixture. After hook up I took it for a test run and was bummed to see I only got 3GPM out of it. A shitty increase of only. 5GPM.

It's not much to go on, and no I don't know the incoming water pressure for the house. But I do get over 8.5GPM in the basement utility sink. Any ideas?
