Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Fundamentals™ 6-Jet Adjustable Shower Head and I am happy to assist you today.
This shower head is designed to dispense a maximum of 2.50 GPM @ 80 PSI. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend removing the flow restrictor in this shower head for several reasons and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Flow restrictors for faucets are an integral part of most aerators and it is generally not possible or desirable to remove them.
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 no longer meet these codes.
If you are noticing decreased water pressure or a poor quality flow rate you may have debris in your flow restrictor or the screen filter in your shower head or aerator. Often this is easily remedied with a simple cleaning process. To clean the shower head, please try to soak the entire unit in a solution of 50/50 white vinegar and water for a few hours and flush the head with warm water for a few minutes to see if you notice an improvement.
I hope this information is helpful and please feel free to give us a call at 800-345-3358 if we can assist you with absolutely anything else going forward.
