When a faucet in a home is turned on and water begins to flow it is because the water is being "pushed." This "push" is driven by pressure. The speed at which water flows from the faucet is water pressure, and it is determined by the amount of "push" or pressure that exists at that time in the system. In short, the higher the pressure, the stronger the "push" behind the water.
