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's a plastic disc, with a little hole in can use a coat hanger to pull it out.

How can I remove the flow restrictor in the shower? I have terrible water pressure.

You need to tell us what shower head it is. Usually the flow restrictor is in the section that screws onto the pipe that goes into the wall. Be careful when you take it off so that you don't mar the chrome finish,

The shower is coming up with low pressure soon as you turn on checked filters all ok


Remove the shower head and check the water flow. If it is good, look inside the head for a restrictor that is designed to reduce the flow rte. It can be either rubber or plastic, with a smaller hole than the inside diameter of the pipe. Remove the restrictor and re-install, making sure that you still have a rubber washer to prevent leakage.

I believe I have a delta monitor shower faucet. I am wondering why the hot water pressure is less than the cold water pressure. Also, I am wondering what size hex head I need to remove the lever so I can...

It takes a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. To increase hot water flow remove plastic dial that sets temperature. It is right behind handle and slides off stem for easy adjustment.

Remove indicator and replace about 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clock wise to increase to hotter temperature.

My delta shower diverter is leaking. How do I find a model/ part number to get a repair kit ?

You may only need to soak the old one in vinegar overnight to remove hard water crust.

Take the old one out and take it to the plumbing store and get an identical one. There aren't very many part numbers for this part; all I've seen is for color choice, chrome or bronze. See if they have a special wrench for reinstalling it, as the diverter valve hex head is very thin and if you aren't fairly delicate you can mangle the brass casting of the faucet body (been there) or distort it using channel locks, vice grips and the like when removing the old one (done that).

Hi Shannon:

The problem is most likely the seats and springs. You should purchase Delta Part # RP4993. I found some for mine at Lowe's for around $4.00. O-rings are available there too for about $2.00, and you probably should go ahead and replace them as well, especially if they feel dry and brittle.

You have to remove the handle, then unscrew the brass ring (or bonnet) with a pipe wrench, then just pull the cartridge straight out. Separate the lower cartridge from the upper by twisting a quarter turn to the left. Once separated, remove the black rubber seats and springs and install the new.
