No water flow from new american standard marquette showerhead

We just installed an American Standard Marquette Shower head and valve. When we turned the water back on for the house, the water came out of the shower head then slowly reduced to a drip. When turning the handle, nothing happens. The showerhead continues to just drip. This is a pressure balancing unit. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you!

I think fitting of your shower is not proper. You have to fit it properly if you can or you can call a nearest Plumber to solve your problem.

All you should need to do is remove the shower head and make sure that their isnt any dirt obstructing the opening ,also if their is a restrictor like you said you need to remove it.This should make a big difference.

SOURCE: single knob for shower and tub wont stop running

I had the same problem, you need to shut off your valves and remove the handle that turns the water on and off. You need to turn the chrome front piece counter clockwise to remove it from the front of the unit. Pull the ball out and you should see 2 rubber o-rings with springs inside. My guess is that you have a bad o-ring that should be replaced. After you buy the kit from your local Home Depot, Lowes etc, you install the pieces the same way you removed them!

How do I get more water pressure from my american standard shower set

Hi Fran:
Most shower faucets now are equipped with flow restrictors. It is possible with some units to remove the flow restrictor plate from the shower nozzle. It has to be dis-assembled to do that.
Regarding the lack of hot water, that would usually be a different problem and will be related to the hot water source.
Hope this helps.

My american standard shower is sending water from the shower when using the tub faucet

Probably a defective, corroded or half stuck diverter. This is the part that diverts the water either to the tub or shower. Disassemble, inspect, repair or replace.

My American Standard R120 shower valve has excellent pressure on the cold side, no pressure on the hot side.

Could be a chunk of scale in the valve. Need to turn off water supply and take valve apart. If nothing is found, turn water supply on to give line a 'quick' flush and turn back off. If this does not help, you probably have an obstruction somewhere in the hot supply line and a plumber may be needed unless you are handy. Good luck.

Water will not flow through on american standard with pressure balance. Some hot water came out with low pressure then stopped and now nothing will flow.

I just spent a week wrestling with a similar problem, and I'm posting in an attempt to save someone else an ulcer. Using a Colony single-handle valve, the temperature got so we couldn't control it. Either all hot or all cold. I called A.S. and they sent a new pressure balancing cartridge and new valve cartridge. Replaced both and then there was no water at all coming out of the shower head. Tried every possible combination of old and new parts, flushed pipes, etc. Finally took the shower head off and found it completely clogged with debris. It was a mix of sediment and the white grease that was in the new cartridges, which must have been displaced when I started messing with it. And it clogged it all at once (no flow problems before all of this). Works fine now!

Took off shower head water barely comming out but have pressure from fauset

Hello
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.

Slow and nonexistent water flow.

Start by removing the spray head from the hose. Pull the spray head out and with a channel lock pliers unthread connection between the spray head and hose. BE CAREFUL not to let the hose fall back down into the faucet. With the hose directed down toward the sink test for volume by turning on the faucet. If you get a nice volume the problem is in the spray head. This is usually the case. Put the spray head back on then remove the aerator. It's the screen where the water comes out of the spray head. Clean out the assembly ( 3-4 parts). Reassemble and test.

Good luck, Phil
