Question about Water Pik Hand Held Shower

1 Answer

I have little black pieces coming out of my water pipes that I filter out of everywhere except the WaterPik handheld shower. If I use the filter there, I get hardly any water coming out. So the little black pieces from my water pipes clog the holes in my shower head. How do I get rid of them. In other words, how do I take the showerhead apart to clean it from the inside?

Make sure the washer is setting inside the shower head properly. If you over tighten it you could crack the body of the shower head making it impossible to repair. Be careful. Remember you may need thread sealant too.

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.
