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.

SOURCE: Removing flow restrictor from Moen Brantford posi-temp shower he

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.

What could be rattling inside the hand held shower head


It sounds like the flow restrictor may have come loose and be rattling around in their. There is no way to open that shower head that I am aware of. If it really bothers you, buy new one.

My water pressure is very low from the original install is there a way to adjust the faucet to allow a better pressure flow


Your issue could be caused by the water restrictor in the shower head. To know for sure, remove the shower head and then turn the water on.

Very tough water restrictions have manufacturers using plastic water restrictors in the shower heads.

Although you are not supose to, some shower heads can be taken apart to modify, or remove the restrictor.

I hope this helps you.

Almost zero water pressure or hot water from our hand-held Moen shower head model # 3827 CP. Our regular head next to it works fine. Suggestions as to what the problem or solution might be?


Remove the head from the hose and test. If water flow is adequate through the hose, the problem is in the head. Look inside the head where the hose connects for a restriction, perhaps twisted rubber. If the issue might be with clogged jets, try soaking in CLR to remove built up deposits.
Hope this helps, --W/D--

  1. snap the chrome adjuster offd2c6998a-2192-4f5b-9240-6bf56d4f6da0.jpg
  2. start unthreading centre of head. I used a paint scraper to leverage at first. The threads get loose soon to hand loosen.0588438c-31ce-4428-9378-28140fa37adb.jpg
  3. loosen the spray ring using a lever to get threads started. Hand loosen after that.It's got right hand thread so the outer ring will be turning counter clockwise.3e2cc1ab-35f5-4521-a05f-e1167596fb04.jpg
  4. Take flat rubber gasket out of centre of head and take screw out, then pry white nylon part out with tool. I used tweezer.a1f4f121-e0e1-450a-a9b8-8777342a3262.jpg
  5. Clean scraped parts in hot CLR solution or any vinegar will work as well. Reassemble with lubricant so it works like new. Most likely need for disassembly is clogging or a broken "o"-ring.6fff7106-1b7b-4330-a3c6-089ea42233cf.jpg

Moen monticello shower control, remove handle


If your Posi-Temp has no water coming through the valve my first step would to replace the cartridge (Moen pn 1222). The valve as a simple one. Get the part first so you can ues the plastic tool that comes with it if you need to. Beneath the actual lever insert on the handle hub you will notice a small hole. this is to gain access to the allen head screw which holds the handle in place
