Question about Ace Hardware OAKBROOK COLLECTION DESIGNERS CHOICE TUB/SHOWER

Regarding the shower head: on one end of the hose it says something about a water shut off. The water doesn't come out of the holes at the end of the hose. It comes the sides of the hose.

I returned the shower head to ACE and purchased a different one (Waterpik) which I put on in less than 5 minutes. Why should I bother signing up and maybe not getting the question answered and possibly being charged and forgetting to delete the account for 1 question.
Sorry, but I took the easy way out.

The simple method is to take the faucet head off the extension pipe that comes out of the wall. It will take two pair of pliers and a firm grip to take it off. Using a wet/dry shop vac at the supply end and a garden hose at the shower end, force water backwards through the faucet head.

I understand that the white vac breaker end should be connected to the valve not the hand shower. FYI a little leak from this connection when the water is switched off is normal.

How do you fix hot water shuts off during shower with Model N-069M-OD installed December 2006?


Try flowing more hot water with your shower. During the summer you end up mixing alot of cold water and very little hot water (because your cold ground water isn't so cold in the summer). When you get close the minimum flow rate of the appliance, it will start to short cycle (fire on and off). Here's some recommended things you can do:

1) Clean the shower head - remove scale deposits and or clogging
2) Widden flow restrictor - most shower heads have a flow restrictor on the back of the showerhead; It consists of a rubber washer with a hole in the center. You can widen the hole using a drill bit.
3) remove the flow restrictor - this should be a last resort

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.

High pressure


Are you sure it's not just that the shower heads are getting dirty from calcium build up, thus reducing the diameter of the holes in the head, which will in turn cause spray to come out at higher pressure. ( same idea as holding your thumb over the end of a garden hose) Try removing and either replacing head, or soak it overnight in C.L.R (available at any hardware store.) and clean it good and try it again.

I have a WaterPik shower head that keeps coming


If your unit has a threaded connection for the handle and hose the threads are most likely stripped. You can get thread grip material at most hardware stores and repair it yourself. Otherwise replacement is necessary.

Remove and replace a hand held shower head hose in whirl pool


Hey Rick........the connectors are just large nuts at each end of the hose. If you remove one of the connectors there should be a a ring slipped around a grooved part of the hose with a plate. If you remove the clip the plate should slide off enabling you to remove the hose. Let me know if you need any more help.

Thx

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.

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


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.
