Bought a new house and the water pressure isnt that powerful. Is there any way to increase it?

You may have a "water-saver" showerhead that restricts water flow, and you can replace it with one that isn't a "water-saver", OR the old showerhead may have a buildup of mineral deposits.
Soak the old showerhead in vinegar overnight to dissolve the minerals, rinse it out good, and re-install it.
Use 2-3 flat wraps of teflon tape clockwise only on all male threads to prevent leaking.
Good Luck! Mike
