Low water pressure in Flat

We've moved into a new flat, which is very lovely, however it is on the 7th floor and the water pressure is bad.

It's not terrible, but showering is very tough and long, and that valve that changes the flow from the faucet to the shower head doesn't always stay in 'shower' mode due to low pressure.

I haven't gotten a chance to ask the Hausmeister, thought I could get some advice here first before I go bother him.

Is there a law in Switzerland for minimum water pressure? Is there something I should try on my own first?

I've tried 2 sets of valves, one set under the sink (with a screw driver) was barely open, fully open I noticed no immediate difference. Another set, hidden under a closet has handles, and was closed.
