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.

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.
