All you should need to do is remove the shower head and make sure that their isnt any dirt obstructing the opening ,also if their is a restrictor like you said you need to remove it.This should make a big difference.

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.

I have a Moen single handle tub/shower faucet. I cannot yet get much pressure to the shower head, there is good pressure from the faucet. I have placed the shower head in vinegar with no improvement. ...


Your problem is in the water restrictor located inside the shower head. All plumbing manufacturers install these small plastic internal blockers to reduce water down to 2.5 gals per minute. In your case, this restrictor is most likely filled with sediment which is restricting it even further. Remove the shower head from the curved shower pipe. Look inside where the water goes through it. You should be able to see the restrictor. Maybe you can flush out the sediment. Otherwise, remove it and I'm sure you'll get more pressure then originally installed. Because most restrictors are sort of plastic screens or cones, I usually put a wood screw through the center of this product and then once a few threads bite in, I use a plyers on the head or the screw and pull outward while holding the shower head in a stable position. If you are able to get it out, technically your "out of code" because now your going to get all the water it can really supply.Most people are delighted to have it gone.

Have you disassembled the shower head to see if it has a flow restrictor in it. If it does you can remove it and any aerator type screens. Hope this helps. Thanks

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.

You may have debris caught in the cartridge. I'm not sure which faucet you have but if it utilizes a ball, there is a retaining ring that is either grey or white that you have to tighten. If not, I would recommend contacting American Standard. You might have a bad cartridge or missed replacing another part. Sometimes they have small round washers at the back of the housing that need to be replaced as well.

I have installed an AS 2555.501 Pressure Balance Vave and now the water pressure in the shower is low


this problem happens quite regularly as the valve will reduce the pressure but sometimes it will reduce too much, you can adjust it up, but you havent mentioned which type of shower valve it serves?
as the shower may not be suitable for the plumbing supplies it connects too , & how they are installed?
i am thinking its from the cold water main & that the valve requires storage feed instead of incoming water main supply? possibly thats why you installed a reducing valve??

Let me know?

Kindly

Richie
