Question about Water Pik Waterpik& Elements& Handheld Showerhead

1 Answer

Water pressure drops after a few seconds to almost nothing...

I removed all of the pieces and the water flow is fine until I hook the hose up. The water comes out just fine for a few seconds and then reduces to almost a trickle, you can barely shower. There is no debris in the set-up.

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.

Installed a new shower and have only cold water hooked up but only getting a trickle of water through it.


Lots of shower valves have pressure balancing cartridges nowadays in order to get full flow out of hot or cold you have to have both the hot and cold hooked up to give even pressure on both sides of the cartridge that should fix your problem and give you a full flow

After changing my Delta shower cartridge i hear a whining noise when i run hot water in the shower. If I also turn on hot water in the bathroom sink (at same time) I get a banging noise from the pipes. ...


the banging noise is called water hammer and there are devices that can be added to your water lines to absorb the shock.

As for the noise, when you had the old cart out, did you flush out the faucet by turning in the water for a few seconds after removing the old one? This is a four hand job, one to control the water gushing out of the faucet and the other to conrol the shutoffs.
check seat and spring for correct assembly, the whine is caused by water pressure and flow obstruction.

Check the 94282000 cartridge for debris on the filters. If your boiler requires a certain flow rate to come on, then you must get enough flow through the cartridge to make that happen. Also, if your boiler is producing very hot water, the cartridge will self regulate and reduce the hot flow accordingly. try lowering the output temperature of the boiler to resolve that possibility.

Low shower head flow from Delta R1824 shower


Try exchanging the Delta head with one of the other shower heads you are happy with if you haven't already done so. No change in the flow means it's not in the head, and change means it is.

If it is in the head, since you are on a well and not a municiple water supply, you might consider removing the factory install flow controll device located just below the threaded area that mounts to the shower arm. These inserts can be a real bugger on some heads and each one is a little different than the last. The trusty nail often works well.

Your body sprays, I believe, are factory fixed at something like 2.2 gpm and non adjustable.

Also consider for a moment a garden hose with trigger spray head on it. When you squeeze the trigger the water will shoot out a certain maximum distance. If you were to take an ice pick and poke a hole in the hose, that maximum distance will be slightly reduced. The more holes in the hose the less the maximim distance. Correspondingly, the more holes you poke the less distance each hole will squirt because you have the same pressure and volume of water but more exit points.

A monitor has a flow rate of about 6 gpm at 85 psi which is pretty average for shower valves. If your other showers have only one exit point(i.e. one head) and the R1824 has 3 with the same pressure and volume, the garden hose illustration can also explain the volume change as well.

When the water is turned to hot, it slows down and stops. Plenty of cold water, though.Valve is less than 3 years old.


This model of shower control is a "balanced flow system." This means that water pressure from both sides of the control is equalized by the control.

There is likely something restricting the flow of hot water into the control.

You might try this......

Turn off the water suppling the shower (turn off the water main if nessacary)

Remove the cartriage from the control

remove any visable debris

briefly turn the water on (just a second at the the most) *** make sure the curtain or door is closed first as there will be alot of water coming out of the control itself... Be prepared to clean up some water

reinstall the cartriage

if this does not solve the problem you might consider replacing the cartriage

Water pressure to main hose has ceased, with water now pouring out of a small outlet pipe at bottom of unit next to fixing for main hose.


Sounds like your outlet at the top has clogged with grit/dirt. Turn the shower off, remover the entire shower head hose from its base (where it screws into the wall or pipe. Turn water back on. If you get a steady flow (as you should) the problem is isolated to the shower head/hose. Detach the shower head from the hose and clean the screen inside, attach hose back on first, try water again, if this flows then your blockage is in the head itself. After removing and cleaning the screen inside the shower head, reattach and run water, this should fix your problem, if not, you may need a new shower head. If the water will not flow to the outlet pipe alone, either your shower switch is broken or you have a serious plumbing problem.

My shower has a delta monitor single faucet. And the flow has diminished so much that I am only getting few drops. The house has a lot of water pressure. What can I do?


Sounds like you have lost pressure on one side of the valve. ( either hot or cold ) Or the cartridge has gone bad. If you have hard water if probably is the cartridge. There are a couple of different series for your style of faucet.

The reason why you only get a few drops is the cartridge is pressure balancing. It is a safety device which prevents scalding if one side of the supply shuts down.
