Low water pressure:

Sometimes the low water pressure from the bathroom or kitchen faucet is just a case of slime buildup in the aerator of the faucet.  If it is the case, then the issue can be fixed just by removing the aerator and cleaning the slimy residue and placing the aerator back into the faucet.  Even after cleaning the aerator, if the pressure is still low, then the issue could be more severe like eroded waterline or a fractured pipe, or even a water leakage in the system. If it is the case, call the professional plumber immediately.
