Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

If you've removed the head and the flow out of the shower arm with no head attached is poor you'll probably have to replace the cartridge in the valve and flush ot the valve before you install the new cartridge.
