SOURCE: flow restrictor

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.

Pull it apart and see if the flow restrictor is plugged in the water inlet to the shower head.

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.

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.

Just installed a Moen 3867 hand held shower. There is no water coming out of the head. Water flows just fine from the hose without the head attached. Is there a restrictor plate or something I can...


Usually whenever you do any repairs on plumbing, you dislodge calcium from the inner surfaces of teh plumbing. Check to see if ther is a mesh filter in the inlet side of the head. and remove and clean it. otherwise you could remove it and use a vacuum yo try and remove any deposit that may be in it. If that is unsuccessful,
you can always return it, but always remember to open the fawcett and run it before installing the head.
This is an essential part of any plumbing job. Good luck

. If your local store refuse to replace it Moen will gladly do so with no problem.

They are good like that.

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.
