    low flow faucet

    Shut off hot water valve and remove supply line. Slowly open valve to test for pressure, if not pressure, remove valve stem and see what you find wrong there. If pressurized, check supply line, blowing it to make sure is open. If line is open then you have to deal with the faucet.

    Bleach to unclog drain???

    I wont recommend chemicals for drain cleaning, instead, if you own a wet and dry vacuum use it to sucks the troubling matters out. It is cheap, cleaner and safer. If that fails, you have a big trouble that requires a pro to deal with it.
