I have low pressure and need more flow. Just wondering if there is a flow restrictor that can be removed.
Thank you for your question on the Delta In2ition® 5-Setting Two-in-One Shower.
I am so sorry to hear that the shower head feels as if it is not providing enough pressure. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend removing the flow restrictor from our shower heads as they will no longer meet specific plumbing codes and could potentially disrupt the way the model functions.
If you would like more information on our flow restrictors, please visit the link below:
Also, this model has been designed to dispense a maximum of 2 GPM (gallons per minute). If you are more familiar with using a model which dispenses 2.5 GPM, you may notice a slight decrease in the amount of water the shower head dispenses.
If you would like to test your model to ensure you are receiving the full 2 gallons of water per each minute that it runs, you can fill a pitcher or bucket for one minute and measure the amount of water the unit dispenses.
One of the more common issues with receiving a lowered flow rate is debris. If you are receiving less than the 2 gallons per minute, you can soak the unit in a 50/50 white vinegar and water solution overnight, which should resolve this issue.
I hope this information is helpful and if we can assist you with anything further, please feel free to give us a call at 800-345-3358 and we will do our best to help you where we can!
