From all your other posts I'd say, call a plumber.

First of all, maybe it isn't a problem. Maybe it is a benefit. Maybe there is low flow hardware installed. If this is the case either leave it be or change out the hardware.

Buy a water pressure gauge at the hardware store. Measure the pressure downstream from the pressure regulator (if you have one). It should be around 60 +/- 10 psi or so. If it is 30 it might be too low; if it is above 80 it is too high. If this is the case turn the bolt on the pressure regulator to an appropriate PSI.

Finally, you may have pipes corroded or clogged. How old is the house? Are the pipes old galvinized?
