Dear PoPville – Identifying Reasons for a Drop in Water Pressure?

Dear PoPville,

Sorry if this is completely redundant, but I’ve noticed a significant drop in my water pressure lately, which wasn’t anything to write home about in the first place. I sincerely do not believe there are any leaks in my home. I know, I know. That’s naïve. But I’m a little paranoid about these things, so I watch religiously for leaks through the plaster. I’m sure there’s all kinds of sediment and crud built-up in my pipes (100+ year rowhouse) – the question is, what can I do about that without damaging the pipes? Digging up the finished basement or going through the plaster walls are not the answers I’m looking for……please tell me there’s another way!
