Hansgrohe Pharo Shower Pressure Very Low

Postby sprocket10 » Sat Oct 03, 2020 10:56 am

We have moved into a house with a Hansgrohe Pharo Comfort Plus shower.
All the sinks and the shower on the bath mixer tap have high pressure. High enough to push the bath shower of its hook if you put the tap on to high.
However the Hansgrohe Pharo in the ensuite has very low pressure. If you turn the shower head upside down, you get less than half an inch height of spray. In comparison, the bath shower will hit the ceiling.
If you turn the shower to jets and shower head you get a dribble.

I have taken the shower off the wall to check the pipe fittings, but they are straight forward screw joins with no tap on them.

I cant seem to find the reason of having such low pressure in the shower.

Hi sprocket10
Assuming there are not any isolating valves in the pipework supplying the shower the most likely cause is that there are blocked inline filters in the pipework somewhere.
