    When you remove the shower head the flow increases correct?

The Shower Valve is regulated to give only 2.2 gallons a minute. If you have the shower head off test how many seconds to get an approximiate gallon running in the middle hot/cold position. If longer than 30 seconds either the stem in the valve is clogged or the water lines to the valve are too small or kinked.

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.

I have extremely low pressure from my Moen Posi-Temp 1222 shower valve, but otherwise it functions well. Should I replace the posi-temp cartrige?


Hi Ken--
Positemp cartdiges should deliver years of maintenance free operation. Usually, clogs develope downstream from the cartridge. If the cartridge still works well, that is, if it still pulls and turns freely, and the rest of the house has decent water pressure, check your shower head. Remove the head and test the water pressure. If the water flows better without it, you may have a clogged shower head. Over time, rust and scale can build up inside the shower head and block what would otherwise be decent water pressure. If a visual inspection does not yield any visible blockage, you can consider cleaning the head by soaking it in a calcium removing solution such as CLR. This often helps, but my preference is to replace the shower head completely.
--Hope this helps.

I have a Delta shower faucet model number 1324 and my shower head is leaking How do I get the faucet part apart I have a diagram, but actually looking at the insides it all looks like one piece I don't...


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.

Hot water dribbles thru shower head when turned to hot


Replacing the cartridge should solve the problem, the balancing spool is stuck, replacing it will solve the problem. The valve should look like this http://www.moen.ca/shared/pdf/3170pt.pdf . I have unstuck the spools in the past, soaking it in white vinegar will help to remove build up.
