Question about Delta & Victorian 5 Spray Showerhead

Delta Victorian 5-Spray Hand Shower has no

Delta Victorian 5-Spray Hand Shower has very little pressure. (even the jet massage setting that is supposed to pulse just shoots a solid flow only half way across the shower. It used to pulse and blast the back wall) I pulled it apart piece by and I have good flow all the way down to the head. Is there a way to clean out the head?

Remove spay head from the end of the sprayer hose and turn the water on. If you have good pressure without the head, call Delta and ask for a new spray head. If you still have low water pressure without the spray head attached, call Delta and ask for a new ceramic disc cartridge free.

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.

Its having some leaking how can i stop that?


If Leaking from the hose connection you can replace the washer, which you can get at any plumbing/hardware store. If leaking around the head area depending on the make and model, most always in the cheaper ones you just have to replace the whole head. Thank You for using FIXYA, good luck. Jeff

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.

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.
