Re: Getting sediment out of shower head
Whenever you mess with the plumbing system of the house, you want to go to all the faucets and showers and remove the heads and aerators, then, starting at the closest faucet to the water main, open and run for a few moments to clear out the debris. Work your way through the house to the furthest fixture. Then start reinstalling all the aerators and shower heads as you work back through the house.
To clear the shower head, remove it and disassemble as much as possible. In a pan of water, fill the head up, shake it vigorously, then hold it upside down so that the particulates will flow out. Do this until you get most of the particles out. Particles lodged in the orifices of the head can be pushed out with a toothpick. With small, inexpensive shower heads sometimes it's easier to just replace them.
Aerators from sinks can be disassembled and cleaned. Make sure you pay attention to the way you take it apart so that you reassemble properly.
