Put a new Delta shower head in my shower... Delta must be latin for dribble dribble...
The flow was so low that I dropped my rubber ducky in sheer boredom while I was trying to rinse off...
Anyone got line on a good showerhead with some flow?

Most new shower heads come with a water restrictor inside
Take the shower head back off, look inside, there will be a little black rubber thing with some small holes in it. Take a pick or screwdriver, what ever works and dig that thing out of there. Put the head back in place and you should have good pressure then.

When we go on vacation, I carry a pliers & teflon tape in my luggage
so if the hotel shower sucks, I can fix it.
There are many missing water restrictors out there!
Let yours be one of them.

The showerhead that I like the best is made by West Brass. I'm pretty sure that they only have one model. They run around $50, but well worth it IMHO. Im pretty sure that you can get them at Home Depot, you'll also have to take the restrictor out which is a small rubber grommet.

Go to Home Depot, Lowes, or Walmart and get one of the high-pressure, low-flow heads that look like this. They cost about $10.00. They are kind of institutional looking but work great.
