When I pull up the plunger to engage the shower head it does not completely close. Which means that I do not get good water pressure from the shower head. What can I do to fix this?

SOURCE: low pressure on Delta 1400 series shower head

The Shower Valve is regulated to give only 2.2 gallons a minute. If you have the shower head off test how many seconds to get an approximiate gallon running in the middle hot/cold position. If longer than 30 seconds either the stem in the valve is clogged or the water lines to the valve are too small or kinked.

Is there a water restrictor in the shower head?A small round disc usually white or clear.
This could be clogged.

Next,take a old toothbrush and some comet cleanser and scrub the showerhead holes,this will get any hard water deposits out of the holes.

Sounds like diverter valve which is your shower handle valve is bad take it apart and check out and replace it if possible because that transfer water to shower head.

Hot water pressure is weak. Shower head isn't clogged. Cold water pressure is good. How do I increase the hot water pressure?

Is the hot water pressure good at other fixtures in the house? I'm guessing your newer valves have a scolding adjustment that is set very low. Check the instructions that came with the valve assembly.

Everything you installed new. Please chack if not one of the gaskets came in a pipe or a line. I once had a rubber ring almost complete blocking the water flow.

All hooked up dobble cked but water only trickles so ample supply

Make sure the hot water is turned back on. Pressure balancing valves won't work if both cold and hot water is not on. Pull shower head off and test to see how it flows out of the shower arm. If good, clear out shower head. Whenever water is turned off for a time, and then turned back on, restricting shower heads and aerators usually get clogged. In the future, always open up a tub spout before turning water back on. This releases the air and other debris most effectively before testing other fixtures in the house.

Low water pressure from shower head with the shower head removed

If you have good pressure at the water faucet close to the shower and low at the shower then the shower valve needs rebuilt. If you have low pressure at all then start going down the line toward the water service coming into the house looking for where the low pressure starts in the distribution system and you should be able to isolate the problem.

I have extremely low pressure from my Moen Posi-Temp 1222 shower valve, but otherwise it functions well. Should I replace the posi-temp cartrige?

Hi Ken--
Positemp cartdiges should deliver years of maintenance free operation. Usually, clogs develope downstream from the cartridge. If the cartridge still works well, that is, if it still pulls and turns freely, and the rest of the house has decent water pressure, check your shower head. Remove the head and test the water pressure. If the water flows better without it, you may have a clogged shower head. Over time, rust and scale can build up inside the shower head and block what would otherwise be decent water pressure. If a visual inspection does not yield any visible blockage, you can consider cleaning the head by soaking it in a calcium removing solution such as CLR. This often helps, but my preference is to replace the shower head completely.
--Hope this helps.

Water only comes out shower head, won't come back out faucet. The shower plunger only puts water out shower head, not out faucet.

sounds like the diverter is jamed. it may be in the spout or a button in the escheuchon. if spout try to unjam the pull up knob or the pull down ring. if in the escheuchon remove part and replace.

Bathtub will not drain...

remove the two screws on the overflow,thats where the lever is, then pull out the plunger. clean it off and turn the water on and let it run a minute so it can flush out any grime or hair that may be down there. If you look at the linkage on the plunger it will have a threaded piece. unscrew that a couple of turns to lengthen the linkage. dont lengthen it to much,only 2 or 3 turns should do. reinstall plunger and fill tub, if it is still giving you problems try adjusting it again. If all else fails then goto a plumbing store and buy a new drain, you can buy just the plunger,linkage, and handle.
