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.

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.

New House The women is complating that then she shower at any of her bathroom tub shower unit the faucet become cold for a little while on all her Moen chateau faucet. We have change all valve cartrige


The problem is most likely with "the back pressure from the flow restrictor in the showerhead causing the spool in the cartridge to sense a false pressure drop. This is forcing the spool to shift, restricting a full hot water temperature from coming out." Believe it or not, I got this information from Moen. Their solution was to send out a valve without the multi settings of the original and that didn't work very well. I can only tell you that I used an older showerhead without the water saver feature and the valve and cartridge worked fine. The problem your having is with the cartridge/showerhead combination and short of using an older showerhead there is not a satisfactory solution. Maybe your plumber has a better solution.
