Ok...the pipe for the faucet comes from the inside of the house. However...I'm not sure where since I don't see a pipe on the other side. So it must be run through the walls or something. If you follow it down back into the wall, it seems to go into a water softener. The weird thing is that both of the pipes go into the water softener.

Do you know for sure that you have municipal water supply? Is there a meter out next to the street?
If the tanks inside are for a water softener, one of them will have a lid or door that opens for adding the salt pellets.
I do have municipal water supply because I have a water meter in the front of the house near the street. As far as I know I don't have a pump or well water anywhere. As for water pressure...I haven't noticied anything but then again my irrigation system is not currently working...yet another project I am currently working on. I looked up pictures of a well water pressure tank and a water softener...and this is definately a water softener.
Should I just stop at this point and have a professional come in to look at this and fix the leaks? Thanks to everyone offering help/ideas.
