all depends on what is causing it. the easiest fix is to check the screens in the fixtures, ie in a shower head take it off and clean the screen/filter. if the pressure problem is throughout the house then it could be your supply pipes are undersized - is it and older house. check the size of pipe coming in from the street - I assume you have mucipiple water. well water diff story

Cool

Remove the showerhead and check the water pressure with it off.
If it is o.k., soak the showerhead in vinegar overnight to dissolve clogging minerals, and try it again.
(Make sure that it isn't a water-saver showerhead, also).
Good luck!
Mike
