Best Answer

calcium build up, get you some CLR- calcium ,lime,and rust remover from Walmart. remove the shower head, in a bowl pour the CLR. Then drop the shower head in and let sit for a couple hours. then remove and rinse. put the head back on and see of it still whistles. if it does its proply gonna need to be replaced. But if you want it might be just as cheap to go to walmart and just buy a new shower head.
