There are two useful diagnostic tricks to determine if building water piping is clogged:
A main water supply pipe failure between the municipal water main in the street (or from a private well) and water supply pipes in the building the building, can occur, perhaps by leaking or by becoming clogged with rust or minerals so that water is not being delivered to the home at good pressure or not at all (if the water line has burst).
In cold climates, the water supply line may have frozen outside or even in the building at an un-heated location.
