Question about Moen Home
I installed a moen hand held shower head. I get poor water flow. I see a green plastic insert in the base of the hand held head. Is that a flow restrictor? If so, can it be removed. I not, I will return the shower head to Home Depot.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: flow restrictors
Remove the shower head from the arm and look inside the connector on the showerhead. You should see a plastic or metal piece that will either unscrew or need to be pulled out with needle nose pliers. Once that's been removed the flow should be improved.

Usually whenever you do any repairs on plumbing, you dislodge calcium from the inner surfaces of teh plumbing. Check to see if ther is a mesh filter in the inlet side of the head. and remove and clean it. otherwise you could remove it and use a vacuum yo try and remove any deposit that may be in it. If that is unsuccessful,
you can always return it, but always remember to open the fawcett and run it before installing the head.
This is an essential part of any plumbing job. Good luck
. If your local store refuse to replace it Moen will gladly do so with no problem.
They are good like that.

How I remove them is take a drywall screw and screw in to the flow restrictor. Then grab it with a pair of pliers and pull out.
