I just remodeled my shower and had this installed. I am not getting the same pressure I had from my existing fixture.
Hi Chileaquiles, Thank you for your question. The showerhead that comes with the model 142910-SS faucet flows at 2.0 gallons per minute, your previous showerhead was most likely 2.5 gpm. Please keep in mind that all new faucets since 1994 are restricted to conserve water per EPA code mandates. Older faucets had no restrictions. Beyond intentional flow restriction, new installations can sometimes have reduced flow if the lines are not flushed prior to installation of aerators or shower heads. The flow restrictors required for aerators and shower heads can clog, resulting in greatly reduced flow rates. Remove the aerator or shower head and make sure the flow restrictor is not clogged.
