hi... yes that's a very common issue with moen "cartridges" -- it's very simple to fix..... grasp the handle and give it a gentle tug upwards when the water is on... if it retracts again, pull the handle out again and tug again but this time a bit harder. Not sure what causes this on new cartridges but it will fix your issue.

Your problem is in the water restrictor located inside the shower head. All plumbing manufacturers install these small plastic internal blockers to reduce water down to 2.5 gals per minute. In your case, this restrictor is most likely filled with sediment which is restricting it even further. Remove the shower head from the curved shower pipe. Look inside where the water goes through it. You should be able to see the restrictor. Maybe you can flush out the sediment. Otherwise, remove it and I'm sure you'll get more pressure then originally installed. Because most restrictors are sort of plastic screens or cones, I usually put a wood screw through the center of this product and then once a few threads bite in, I use a plyers on the head or the screw and pull outward while holding the shower head in a stable position. If you are able to get it out, technically your "out of code" because now your going to get all the water it can really supply.Most people are delighted to have it gone.
