Screeching sound in pipes

I removed the restrictor plate from a new shower head.

Now the water makes a squealing/screaching sound when you run it.

In fact I have the same problem when I fill the tub in my own house.

What causes this?

It's really loud!

How can it be eliminated or at least diminished?

Thanx

Jim

Jim; replace the restrictor plate and see if it stops. Let us know.
