added air = greatly increased pressure,
This review is from: Delta 75152 Adjustable Water-Amplifying® showerhead with H2Okinetic® Technology, Chrome (Tools & Home Improvement)
This head generates excellent pressure at only 2.5gpm and full coverage. It feels like more pressure than my generic showerhead with regulator removed, which allows 3.7gpm. The water flow of this Delta looks quite messy, but is not bad. The air that is added to the water to boost pressure does make it sting ever so slightly, but not as bad as most showerheads that use air to boost pressure. (The Oxygenics Trispa uses similar technology but it really hurts if you have average water pressure.) The build quality is excellent too.
I have tried over 10 showerheads recently, and this one has the 2nd best pressure of all of them. (The "best" one stings too much.) I highly recommend this showerhead. It is the one I plan to keep using. Sadly, it does not come in a handheld version.

How do you remove the regulator, I tried but am having trouble. I see a green thingy, pull it, it's loose, but too big for the hole. What do I do?

The hole should be big enough if you've removed the rubber washer. Look at the picture uploaded by Jonathan Yip where he is holding it in his hand. In the very center there are 4 gray prongs (green on yours). Grab one prong with needle-nose pliers and pull straight out. Give it a yank because the metal pipe should be a lot stronger than the green plastic regulator. This should work unless they've significantly changed the design, but they had to get that regulator in somehow, so it should be able to come out. If it still won't come out, either post a picture or use a drill to destroy the green water restrictor.
By the way, if you have good pressure (60+ psi) to this shower, removing the regulator may provide more pressure/sting than you wanted.

After some tinkering, I discovered that the regulator on this showerhead is just a small rubber circle ring. I took it out and pressure greatly increased. (The green water thing is still there, but I think like you suggested, the design has changed.) Do you know the GPM after the restrictor is removed? Thank you.

Hello. I have a low water pressure and you mentioned this had the second highest pressure out of the ones you tested. i am curious to know which one had the highest pressure?

Oxygenics TriSpa had the most pressure. It hurts if you have normal pressure and flow.
