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.

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.

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.

Lets start by removing the shower head from the chrome pipe on the wall and check the screen filter to make sure you are getting full flow. if this dose not cure problem then lets look at the diverter it a push button on the wall plate or a pull down spout diverter? if it's the push button it may have a bad paddle and needs to be replaced. If it's on the spout i am leaning towards the shower head. hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information.

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).
