That shower head filter can be left out--there may also be a flow restrictor--kind of a washer with a tiny hole---that is some times drilled out to allow for better flow--(It's illegal to do that so don't let the shower police into your home)

My old boss had me do such a thing in the mid 90's because of the chemicals that we had at the shop, get them on you and you wanted water NOW not 5 minutes from now.

I didnt see a flow restrictor. Just the filter and the aerator. I am about to hop in the shower and see if the pressure is in deed fixed. I'm glad it wasn't my pump or well that was the issue! Their seems to always be some big unexpected bill every month lately.
