Shower Head ?

Hello folks. I replaced the shower head handheld. It's a Moen. I'm not impressed with the pressure and think it may be a low flow or water saver. Anyone have any recommendations for a better one? Anyway to increase water pressure?
Thanks

Re: Shower head?

Usually the low flow devices are right where the hose attaches to the head and it can often be removed easily. However I have never had a Moen.

Re: Shower head?

I think all shower heads sold in the US are limited to 2.5 GPM. If you want a real shower you need to do what DeepFrz said and figure out how to remove the restrictor. There was a TV episode (Sienfeld I think) where the characters were trying to smuggle shower heads in from Canada so they could have a real shower.
