This review is from: Waterpik ECO 563 EcoFlow 5-Mode Water Saving Handheld Shower, Chrome (Tools & Hardware)
I purchased this item locally.
While this item does indeed save water, it provided me with the most UNsatisfying shower I have ever had. I understand that reducing the flow of the water is the intended goal, but when you have to shower an extra five minutes just to make sure you are completely rinsed sort of defeats the purpose. I have no water pressure problems, so unless I installed the item incorrectly, then the showerhead is completely to blame. One good thing is that it was very easy to install and I was done in less than five minutes.
As an added note, the "pause" function does not stop the water, it merely reduces the flow a little.
There are other showerheads out there that reduce water flow while still providing an adequate or even above-average shower experience. I previously owned an Oxygenics handheld showerhead that puts the Waterpik to shame. I will be returning this item to the store immediately.

You can remove the flow valve to increase water flow.

Just out of curiosity, did you have the flow regulator turned all the way to its lowest setting? That gives you a feeble trickle, but if you turn it up to the full 2 gpm it should give a much stronger spray.

Never tried that, but then again I no longer own this item. This was too long ago. :)
