In a typical community water supply system, water is transported under pressure through a distribution network of buried pipes. Smaller pipes called house service lines are attached to the main lines to bring the water into your house.
In many water supply systems, water pressure is provided by pumping water up into storage tanks that store water at higher elevations than the houses they serve. The force of gravity then “pushes” the water into your home as you open the tap. Houses on private wells supply usually get their water from a private well. A pump brings water out of the ground and into a small tank within your home or a tank outside, where the water is stored under a controlled pressure.
