Any plumbers in the house?
Just installed a Moen Adler shower mixing valve along with the spout and shower head. Turned on the water supply to the house and then opened the bath tub water and only a slight trickle of water came out. Figured it was one of three problems. 1) Clog in the cold water line. 2). Since the hot water line isn't turned on, I figured there might be back pressure going into the hot water lines, thus not allowing the cold water to flow (doubtful). 3). Bad mixing valve cartridge.

I changed out the mixing valve cartridge and nada. I'm doubtful the cold water is flowing into the hot water lines so the only option I can figure out is a restriction in the mixing valve.

Thus, I'm at a loss. Anybody have a reasonable fix for this situation? I'd appreciate your help.

If you have any debris in the line, that could clog it.

This is the equivalent of tracking control in your car. You now do not have a stable amount of water moving along through pipes.

What you need to do is go get some plumber tape. And then caaaaarefully apply the tape to the end of the faucet.
Thusly like so:
