Hi, all the shower heads that I replaced, the flow restrictor was always in the nut that you screw onto the pipe that comes out of the wall.it's a plastic disc, with a little hole in middle.you can use a coat hanger to pull it out.

1 Check if the holes in the hand held shower are not clogged with scum which generally happens over prolonged use. Clean them with a pin. 2 If this does not help, then check the the pipe connecting the shower to the water outlet. It should be clean and not clogged with foreign material which restricts the flow of water. 3 It still it does not help then you may have to fix a booster pump or raise the level of the water reservoir.

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.

There is very little water coming out of the head. how do i take the head off


Check out the connection line to the hand held shower. Take it appart and check out the screen and make sure it is clean. Also there is a dime shaped restrictor that reduces water consumption down to 1.6 gals. You can remove that plate and the water flow will increase. The head on the shower itself you can soak it in vinegar to clean head up.


Hope this will be of some help yo you thanks.

Glacier bay single valve shower has low pressure. looking for schematic to see how the gears inside should be placed


The "gears" are simply to restrict the handle from turning to too hot a setting. Mostly if you install them lined up to the top you'll have maximum handle travel to the fully hot setting if that's what you want. Remove the shower head and see if the flow from the pipe is strong. If it is then the blockage is in the head itself. Check for buildup in the screen and clean it out. There is also most likely a flow restrictor in the head which can be pulled out with needle nose pliers. If the cold runs OK and it's just the hot that's slow you may need to clean the cartridge in whit vinegar to free up the pressure balancing slider.

Water pressure drops after a few seconds to almost nothing...


In the hand held shower head where the hose attaches to shower head. In the head there could be a flow restrictor. It may be rubber or plastic. In some cases you can remove it, or check if something is blocking it. Also try running the shower without the head on to see if there is some debris in the hose, and to check your water flow.
