Unhappy Delta faucet weak flow (weakwork98)

Just changed Delta cartridge RP46074 with new one.Had very low tub and shower water pressure.I ran the water before I put tub faucet and shower head and the water pressure was strong enough.So I put the faucet handle and shower head back together and then I turned back water back on and it was still very low water pressure.Are the line to the tub faucet and shower clogged and how can I unclog them without damaging the lines.I do have hard water because we use well water

It's doubtful that the lines themselves are clogged. Are you sure all the valves are fully open to the shower?

Since you're seeing poor water flow/pressure to both the tub and shower head, it's gotta be something in the cartridge setup.

Talking weakwork98

Thank all who have responded to my assistance for help in improving the water flow from my shower.I have corrected the problem by removing the Delta cartridge and spraying CLR into the Valve mod where water is distributed to the faucet and to the shower.The Valve mod was the thing that was clogged with calcium and rust build up.Thank you again your responses.
