Re: Automatic Trickle Questions
O you multitask while you wait for the shower to get hot? Brush your teeth? Make the bed? Maybe even pick out your clothes or iron a collar? Many of us do—and don’t know that while we’re feeding the dog or grabbing that second cup of coffee, two-and-a-half gallons of hot water per minute are funneling down the drain. The automatic trickle reduces the flow of the water as soon as it reaches a comfortable 95 degrees. This way your hot water is no longer running down the drain while you’re away from the shower. The automatic trickle allows your showerhead to warm your shower without wasting hot water and tell you (hear) the when your shower is ready. Evolve is the leading manufacturer of this kind of products.

there can be a few causes for this , but they all point to one device , the valve for the single handle shower , can be glue stuck inside it from out of new pipes , can be foreign object stuck inside it from new pipes , could simply hooked up upside down , shower valve to inlet and inlet to shower head , also all the new single handles have a automatic shunt that adds cold water to hot water to keep you from freezing or scalding ones self , most of these require a little adjustment (see instructions included in paperwork) and if one hooked the hot to cold inlet and cold to hot inlet this auto shunt will really be confused , why ive even seen them bad right out of box before (although a little rough handing might have been involved with that one)
If its a trickle occasionally its normal, when you turn off shower the water is still in pipe right up to shower head, it cools down, contracts and backs away from the head, when house gets warmer water expands up to the shower head and trickles out.
Very common to get debris like rust stuck behind your valve or in the aerator in the shower head. Try taking off the shower head and cleaning the screen and discs. If the junk is behind the valve you'll have to shut the water off and remove the valve. Careful, there's a retaining clip that has to be taken out. There's a specialty tool for Moen valves (costs about $30. to help pull the valve assembly). Good luck
You have a blockage of the hot water coming to your shower head, or a blockage in the supply line coming to the shower head.
Be careful of the hot water in this procedure below.
Remove the head and try to clear the blockage from the head, as you have the shower head removed try to turn on the hot water to make sure you are getting a full stream of hot water to the shower head, if you do have a full stream coming to the shower head then the blockage is in the supply line coming to the shower head.

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.
