Removing the flow restrictor
I have a pfister hand held single valve shower that I had installed. Its looks really nice however due to the flow restrictor, taking a shower now sucks. At first I thought the valve might be dirty and did have some left over debris from the tile job. So I cleaned it as recommend and tested the output and that was fine. However, when I the showerhead back on it sucked. I unscrewed the showerhead and found an o-ring that I removed which did help but not enough. The flow restrictor isn't like the one on the sites that show you how to remove it. This has 4 tabs that fit into hole of the washer blocking most of the water. What water that does goes though these little holes . I tried to remove it with small flathead but it won't budge. I'm thinking of getting out my drill but I don't want to damage the showerhead. How do I remove this thing?
