Post a photo of the taps and see if you can find a brand name. What kind of pipes do you have in the house. Copper, galvinised steel or coloured plastic.

If you can drain the pipes and then refill them by turning on the hot water, you may be able to feel the point at which the piping is no longer hot and so that's the point of the blockage.

Also, if you tap on the pipe with a screwdriver shaft, a full pipe may sound different from an empty pipe.
