I checked with Ultra Faucets and for the Shower Head part # 277-000008 is rated for 2.5 gallons per minute. So with a 5 gallon water heater you'd have 2 minutes of hot water.

The only way to really increase the time of having hot water would be to go with a larger hot water heater otherwise you'd have to be constantly needing to shut the water off while in the shower to preserve it.

We have the 10 gallon water heater part # AT94022 which uses gas and an internal electric heating element to increase the amount of hot water it can provide. It can provide up to 20 gallons of hot water per minute.
