1. a new shower head will help immensely
they are designed for low flow these days

take a trip to your local plumbing supply store and check them out (don't forget to pick up some teflon tape while you're there)

I used to trade out the shower heads in my rentals but save the old one and switch them back when I moved :evilgrin:
