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.

SOURCE: No water flow through the showerhead bracket

blow air through the part that attaches to the bracket and see if there is any air coming out if not you probably have a clog in the tube or the head.

SOURCE: flow restrictors

Remove the shower head from the arm and look inside the connector on the showerhead. You should see a plastic or metal piece that will either unscrew or need to be pulled out with needle nose pliers. Once that's been removed the flow should be improved.

I have bought several shower heads as the spray pressure is low but none have helped. The pressure is ok on low setting on half heat but too cold. On full heat its too hot on min setting. Help plz ?


The problem is that all shower heads sold now have to be low water volume. You can take the restrictor out and see if that helps. Look for a blue or white plug type insert in the fixture that has a slot on it. Pull it out and you should be good.

Flow restrictor removal


In a shower, it is a disc located between the showerhead and the supply line. If you remove the showerhead, you will find the disc.

Installed a new faucet and no water comes out


Since your question is so vague (is it a shower, tub/shower, lavatory, kit. sink or laundry tub faucet) I'd have to say that the flow restrictor in the aerators or showerhead is clogged up. Just unscrew and remove and either clean aerator or sh.head out and/or remove flow restrictor permanently. If that doesn't work turn off water and disconnect supply tubes from faucet and run them into a bucket and turn water back on to check for volume. If you have plenty of water at supplies then remove faucet and take defective faucet back to where it was bought and get another one!

I want more water pressure/volume from my sigmatherm shower faucet. Is there an ''inside the wall'' volume adjustment?


If you are looking for more flow from your showerhead, remove the showerhead and check the following.

1. Check for debris inside the connection nut.
2. See if you can locate a flow restrictor inside the connection nut. There are a few different types, but most can be removed with little effort.
3. If your showerhead has small rubber nozzles on the face, rub them with your finger while the water is flowing. This will loosen and wash away any sediment that may be present in them.

This picture shows one type of restrictor that is used in showerheads.
