    Default squealing shower head

    every time I take a shower the head will squeal for about 2 minutes. It only does it with hot water. It has been doing this ever since I replaced my shower head. The handheld shower wand doesn't squeal when I use it. It is just the shower head. After about 2 minutes it will quit. I have a video of the squealing shower head but I couldn't post it on here. please help.

    It's generally a flow/pressure thing. Remove the "low flow" restrictor from the shower head and the squeal will likely go away. You can also enlarge the hole slightly which will probably take care of it too.

    Now you can cut your showering time in half ...

    Try enlarging the hole in the restrictor slightly, that way you still have a "low flow" head and save water without the annoying whistle.
