Are there entire subdivisions in New Territory, that have severe water pressure issues. By severe I mean, when you run the bath to fill the tub, there is no water in the kitchen fixtures; When you flush the toilet, water stops in the 1/2 bath down the hall. We found this out in a recent home inspection, and don't know what to make of it. Bad Water softener? Major plumbing leak? An issue typical to the entire subdivision/New Territory ?

West? East? I am not having any problems here in West NT so far.
Did you check your valves? The main valve and the outside valve. Maybe they are half shut.

East side.
Was told, recent drought conditions in the area could be to blame.

We have lived in New Territory for many years, and never had any issues with water pressure. We currently do not have any issues with our water pressure despite the drought.

Drought conditions have nothing to do with low water pressure. It sounds to me like your interested in buying and the owner isn't disclosing something.

In my neighborhood the water pressure starts going down in the morning due to everyone watering their lawns more frequently, and usually in the early morning hours. I joke that I'm not taking a shower, but a drizzle. But later in the day, the water pressure returns to normal

Did you ever find out what is causing this? I'm in the process of buying a place & just had the water (and other utilities) turned on today. I'm less that impressed with the water pressure. Is ther any way to fix this? Is there anything I should as k the inspector tomorrow when he comes out?

the inspector can check/read the pressure from the outside and let you know if it looks like there is a problem. tell him you are concerned about it
