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.

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.

Yes there is a water saver disk in the aerator. It is a small disk about 1/2" diameter with a very small hole in the center.
When you take the aerator apart pay attention to the parts order so they are put back in the same order minus the water saver disk.

Water flow is terrible, removed green check valve, now its great. Is there a problem not using the check valve ?


if it is a back flow check valve, then it is designed so water from sink, etc will not flow back into water pipes/system. as long as you do not submerge the faucet into the sink or some other standing water, you will be fine.(and even if you did, the odds of an issue is very very small, if at all). what you removed also could be a flow restrictor and if that is what you removed their is no downside except for more water use.

How do I remove the flow restrictor on my Moen Level single-handle vanity faucet? The water pressure is terrible.. The water


balance pressure faucets and tub sets were designed to keep you from getting scalded because someone else on your water system flushes a toilet or turns on water elsewhere. The technology has not yet been perfected and there are some less than desirable trade-offs.

your best bet is to replace the faucet with a less sophisticated type. Glacier Bay and American Standard make some fairly inexpensive units that have eye appeal and the simplicity you're looking for. Be sure to get that basin wrench to make the change out so much easier

How can I remove the flow restrictor in the shower? I have terrible water pressure.


You need to tell us what shower head it is. Usually the flow restrictor is in the section that screws onto the pipe that goes into the wall. Be careful when you take it off so that you don't mar the chrome finish,

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!

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.
