We have an Amcor Ultimate Shower System 2 which we think is probably clogged with gravel from the water lines. Is there an easy way to take the shower head apart to be cleaned out? We have tried soaking it in vinegar to no avail.

SOURCE: How do I upstop the shower head on a mr.coffee 4

if your clog is organic, a weak lye sollution may dissolve the blockage Once the clog is unblocked then neutralize the lye with vinegar, and flush with water. (lye isnt too bad, its used to make pretzels hard, but it is not the best thing to have unneutralized, it is a strong base, and dissolves most organic things.. vinegar turns it into salt.... which then flushes out with the water

SOURCE: Clogged shower disc

We have the same machine -- the Italian grocer who sells us our coffee recommended the following and it worked really well for us:

use a blowtorch -- we have one of those kitchen ones for creme brulee and the like -- however, you will notice slight blackening of the disc -- otherwise the disc is fine. Shine the disc in the light to ensure all holes clear. Blast it again if necessary -- gets hot so ensure you have protected your hands etc...

SOURCE: water comes from both the shower head and bath tub

if it is standard shower where you pull the knob up when water is running. the pull knob lifts a flap to shut off water to bottom faucet it proably has some buildup on the flap clean well with some clr or other calcium cleaner like it so the flap gets a clean seal on downspout

I JUST INSTALLED A TITAN N-120 TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATER AND IT WORKS FINE FOR ALL THE SINKS BUT IT IS NOT PROVIDING HOT WATER TO THE SHOWER AND THE WATER FLOW HAS DIMINISHED IN THE SHOWER AS WELL.


It's doubtful your water heater unit is the problem. There is simply no reason for it to only work on sinks unless some how the pipe size was drastically reduced coming out of the unit so sinks got plenty of hot water but the shower does not. Take a second look at the installation. The pipe should not be less than 1/2" coming out. If that's OK then consider a clog or valve problem.

Shower temperature fluctuating and will not stabilise


You haven't provided much information to help narrow down the source of the problem.

Is the flow of both hot and cold water flowing freely? Are the water lines not clogged internally with corrosion or residue? Is it possible that the water is being diverted such as in an apartment building or to an outside spigot (sprinkler system) or kitchen faucets (dishwasher)?
Is your water heater temperature setting correct and is it supplying sufficient hot water flow to the shower?
Do you have a temperature balance cartridge in your shower faucet? If yes, it could possibly be faulty.

Shower in basement is backed up. Wondering if it's because a floor drain is covered up.


sounds more like the drain line is clogged between the shower and the main stack, and shares venting and drain with your kitchen sink. Have a plumber run a drain snake down from your kitchen drain (after the 'P' trap ) to clear the line. A covered over floor drain should have no effect on the back-up.

I have a newly installed shower with moen chateau shower faucet. After several successful showers, the water has completely stopped. what could be wrong?


There is probably junk in the lines that has clogged mixing valve Moen is pretty simple to operate and maintain, however, before the new system was installed, maybe it was done, the water should have been run through the valve itself, without mixing valve installed. I am going to provide you with a video that shows how to remove the valve and, with a little help, you can remove valve and hopefully can clear the lines by running water, slowly, through the fixture, without the valve installed. You would want to try this anyway to make sure you have flow to the faucet:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-SNBNijfQc
Make sure all junk is cleared from lines and re-install your valve. If your cold and hot water is backwards, remove the valve and rotate 180 deg. and re-install. You can note the way the tabs are when you remove, and install in the same position.

Cold water pressure poor in shower. Just had Rheem installed.


You might have clog in water lines.
If shower is only place where low pressure exists, then clog is probably at shower valve.
Disassemble valve and see if clog will flush out.
From there, you have to keep moving back along cold water line looking for pipe filled with sediment or elbow that has obstruction.

If pressure problem is bad at every cold tap, but doesn't affect Hot water, then clog is inside Cold line somewhere after water heater connects to cold line.
Buy a pressure gauge that connects to water hose.
Buy adapter that also fits pipe thread.
For example Brady BTG 100.
Test outdoor spigot for baseline pressure.
Open cold tap inside house and see how much pressure drops.
Close cold line and open hot tap and see how much pressure drops.

Next, move pressure gauge along cold water line.
Take apart pipes and inspect for obstruction at elbow or pipes filled with sediment.
Look for any place galvanized pipe connects to copper pipe, since this will be likely place for obstruction because of bi-metal corrosion.

SINGLE VALVE SHOWER FAUCET TURN ON TO GET HOT WATER ONLY GETTING WARM WATER LUKE THE OTHER TUB AND SINK FAUCET COME OUT HOT HELP PLEASE


I can think of a few possibilities. 1) Something is blocking the hot water in to the mixing valve. Fixing this would probably mean cutting out the valve (then redoing the water lines with a new valve (possible option)).

2) The hot water line is losing too much heat going to this second faucet. (If the two tubs are on different floors this is more common. Many places are plumbed with one line with Ts to all fixtures.) Insulating the water lines might help; alternatively an point of use water heater would help.

3) The hot water and the cold water in are reversed. (Test by leaving the water on full cold and full hot for a few minutes each.) If you get full hot when it should be cold, valves with a cartridge are easy to fix. Open the valve assembly, remove the cartridge and reinsert it after turning it around (side closest to you when you removed it goes in first). Otherwise, the incoming plumbing needs to be redone at the point where the cold and hot lines come into the shower.

I hope this helps.

No hot water to shower since new rad was added


take the shower head off and make sureits not clogged,, if it's not then valve has dirt in it you need to take the cartdrige out or the stem depending on the diverter and clean it out, but it does appear to be dirt, maybe solder got into the water line and came up there

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II won't fill up with water


Please provide the exact Model number in your reply.

I realize you indicated you had checked the hoses, but check the filter screen at each end of the hoses, and inside the water inlets of the washing machine. If mineral buildup has broken loose inside the lines, it will plug those screens (My neighbor had a similar problem happen to him a couple of months ago, in a bathroom, where 2 sinks, a shower, and the tub, all clogged due to mineral buildup breaking loose inside the pipe system.
