Question about Home
Replacing the existing shower head is not the way to fix the problem. But removing the flow restrictor from your shower head can be a better way to increase water pressure. Not all showerheads come with flow restrictors accept the new models.
This is an easy DIY task that you can do by following a series of steps. Gather a pipe wrench, needle nose pliers, dry cloth, and a dry cloth to make the task done.
For fixed showerheads, use a dry cloth to wrap the shower arm and connecting nuts to prevent scratches. After removing the head, locate the restrictor.
Remove the rubber washer with the needle-nose pliers and remove the flow restrictor using a flat screwdriver. Avoid peel off by wrapping the shower arm thread with Teflon tape. Then reinstall the head and check if it's fixed.
If you want to remove the flow restrictor from your handheld or Moen shower head, read the step by step guide.
I've found on the internet. Hope this guide will help you to the task easily.

The problem is that all shower heads sold now have to be low water volume. You can take the restrictor out and see if that helps. Look for a blue or white plug type insert in the fixture that has a slot on it. Pull it out and you should be good.
