Most often the shower head will be threaded together. Use 2 strap wrenches to take it apart. The strap wrenches will not damage the finish. Do not force it if the fixture does not come apart easily. Soak the head in vinegar overnight to loosen the mineral deposits and make it easier to work with. Good Luck

Triton aspirante shower 9.5kw why is there not much water pressure?

If the mains water pressure is good supplying the shower unit the restriction must be within the unit or the hose and shower head. Try removing the shower head and if no better the unit should be investigated.

Instantaneous shower units are designed for connection to the mains water supply. They can be connected to a header tank supply but a booster pump will probably be needed unless the header tank is at the top of a very tall house.

Any idea how to open the grey part where the water comes out of this rohl 1151/8pn handheld shower?

Joe, Soak that head in a plastic bag or container of vinegar and it will remove most if not all the deposits, just give it a little scrub with old tooth brush a few times put back in vinegar for approximately 4 hours or leave overnight. This may also allow easier disassemble.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Shower keeps tripping out ? Only just started doing it

Calcium deposits from hard water are collecting inside the shower head. The holes are narrowing and/or clogging.
Unscrew the shower head and clean with a Calcium removing agent. Or get a new one for the price of the chemistry needed to clean the head.

My grohe 5 spray plus hand held shower is locked in the hand held position and I can't get the top shower head to turn on. The control used to switch easily from top spray to hand held but is now locked...

The control may be clogged with mineral deposits and consequenly unable to function. You can try disassembling the shower to remove the deposits but it may be necessary to replace the complete unit.

Can't get both hot water running at the same time. Delta Shower faucet

  • The spool and sleeve, the part of the Scald-Guard pressure balance valve that blends the hot and cold water, is not working properly. This can is caused by mineral deposits that build up over time resulting from hard water. To fix this, follow the steps below based on your model.
  1. Shut off water supply.
  2. There are two types of valves. Choose one or the other below depending on your series.
  • 1300-1400 Series: Remove handle.
  • 1700-1800 Series: Remove temperature knob, cover and handle.
  1. Twist and pull sleeve to remove it.
  2. Unscrew brass bonnet nut.
  3. Remove cartridge.
  4. Soak cartridge in a 50/50 vinegar and water solution for 24 hours to remove any mineral deposits.
  • **NOTE** Unless both hot and cold water supplies are turned on, the pressure balance valve will allow only a dribble of water to flow through the valve.
  • I have put up a picture to make disassembling it just that much easier for you.

I have an older Delta single handle shower scald guard. Water pressure from the cold side is fine. When I turn it to hot it slows to a trickle. After a minute or so it picks up slightly but it is then hard...

It sounds like it has mineral deposits in the hot water side. Try taking the internal valve parts completely out of the fixture and examine them. If there is any scaly (light grey) deposits, that would be the problem.
The solution is to soak all the parts in vinegar, which will dissolve the mineral deposits. It takes awhile to dissolve what has taken long to build up, so heat the vinegar, or put it all on a warm, not hot, surface to keep it more active.
I had this problem, and after cleaning it a couple of times with vinegar, I changed out the Delta to another brand. You could also use a water softening unit, which replace calcium and other metals with sodium, thus eliminating the mineral deposit problem.

Flow of water thru shower head is barely a trickle

There is a chance there is mineral deposits in the showerhead openings. You can try products sucha as limeaway by unscrewing the showerhead , soaking in the limeaway for a few minutes and rinsing with water. You may have to repeat this a few times to get it clean.
