Another solution is using self-fusing tape for repair. Take of the grime from the pipe, and put around 20 cm on the place of rupture. The placement is after you stretched to double length and wrapping quickly around.
Uncloging a toilet or stop from running
If water need more time when flushing out or if the water level rise more, you know that there is a blockage of the pipes. Try to not panic a lot, even if you are facing this new situation.

Another cause for appearing of leaking is the aerator. This is the filter on the end rode of the spigot. After a period of time, mineral deposits are appearing in the aerator.
You can lose pressure if the aerator clogs, and the pressure is pressed on the gaskets and seals. To prevent this, replace the aerator every couple of years.
