I just installed this shower head on new renovated bathroom and need more water pressure. We are on well water and this is upstairs bathroom I have removed the water saver washer in previous showers heads in our home which helps. How do I remove the water saver in the 142710-RB-1 shower head?
Hi Frustrated, Thank you for your question!
While it is possible to remove flow restrictors from shower heads, we strongly advise against it for several reasons. Flow restrictors for faucets are an integral part of most aerators and it is generally not possible or desirable to remove them.
Our showering devices are specifically designed to operate most efficiently at the flow rate controlled by the flow restrictor. Removing the flow restrictor from an showering device will result in improper operation and a very uncomfortable experience.
For water conservation purposes, most plumbing codes require faucets and showering devices to not exceed a certain maximum flow rate. Removing the flow restrictors could cause these devices to longer meet these codes.
