Water flow restrictor?
Hello, could you please tell me where is the water flow restrictor is located..
I would like a free flowing shower head. This 2.5 gpm doesn't let this fine unit live up to it's potential. What's the best way to get rid of the flow restrictor? Should I just drill the inlet hole out to get more water into the head? Please Help!!
Thank you for your question. Flow restrictors are usually found in the neck or threaded end of the shower head exposed when the shower head is removed from the shower arm.
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 shower heads 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.
Altering the shower head will also void the product warranty.
