If the pressure is the same for both hot and cold. Then most of the time it could be just a blocked Screen/Aerator. Unscrew it and see if the pressure has improved. If so the replace it! Lowe's or Home Depot have them.

How do I get more water pressure from my american standard shower set

Hi Fran:
Most shower faucets now are equipped with flow restrictors. It is possible with some units to remove the flow restrictor plate from the shower nozzle. It has to be dis-assembled to do that.
Regarding the lack of hot water, that would usually be a different problem and will be related to the hot water source.
Hope this helps.

I just installed a new Shelton Pfister pull out kitchen faucet that whistles when turned on. How do I remove the flow restrictor?

I don't think it is the flow restrictor. I am guessing your water pressure is on too high. That would cause the whistling.

Remove flow restrictor on KWC Faucet

We have a KWC 10.501.012.000 - Systema kitchen faucet and after installation the water pressure was much lower, even after adjusting the faucet's limiter screw to "minimum". We ultimately decided that the reduced flow was unusable and called back the plumber service. They sent out a different guy this time and he knew where to find and how to remove another of the faucet's built-in limiters (it has three, apparently).

I saved the removed water limiter parts. I hope this picture of them can you or anyone else with this same problem remove the limiter and get strong flowing water again...

My new Blanco sink faucet does not provide much water pressure; is there a restricion part inside the faucet head that can be removed to allow for more pressure?

No you can not remove them, if you try to dill out the water saver you might do damage to the faucet.

Sorry next time you buy check the G P M flow rating.

Best of luck Rich

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.

Blanco 2.2 GPM Faucet/Side Spray#157-013ST Via Google NO PRESSUR

Try unscrewing the aerator and cleaning the screen that you'll find there. If that doesn't work then you should check the pressure under the sink by removing the cold water hose from the cutoff valve (turn it off 1st!). If the pressure there is good then try removing and cleaning the cartridge by soaking it overnight in white vinegar or consider replacing the whole faucet if it's old. You can also call Blanco and see what they'll do for you as it has a "Limited Lifetime Warranty." If the pressure at the cutoff is low it's time to call a plumber!

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.

pull the sprayer out, get some plyers or a wrench and losen up the connection. between the hose and the sprayer there is usually a screen take it out and walla it should take care of you, it also helps to leave the sprayer in some lime away or vinegar for a few hrs to get the hard water losened up in it

Grohe bath faucet adjustments

Do you still have the owner's manual of the faucet? if so check under troubleshooting. It sounds like, most grohe products, a pressure problem. Did you check the pressure coming into the house? Do you have a water regulator outside the house? If so check the pressure.
