Does this product have a removable flow restrictor?
I am considering a model 57021 handshower. Our water supply pressure is 30-40 psi, so a fixture rated at 2.5 gpm at 80 psi will actually deliver much less. Is there anything we can do about this?
Hi John, 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 showerheads 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.
At 40-50 psi the model 57021-SS hand shower will provide approximately 2 to 2.25 gpm.
