We live in an older home. The water pressure is really bad. We can't do more than a couple of things at a time. The city says that our area is fine. We also have alot of mineral deposits. I was wondering if these deposits could build up over time. How would one clean out these lines? Do the lines ever get kinks in them? Any suggestions?

Sounds like you may have older-house galvanized water supply pipes, which are notorious for scaling up (rust, mineral deposits, etc.) over time, and can actually plug up completely. If you do, about the only solution is replumbing with copper or pvc/cpvc (plastic) supply lines. Sorry. Good Luck!
