Hey!
I am residing in the city region and for the past few days the water pressure is comparatively low and the neighbours are stating there is an issue in the drainage. Can someone help us with this? How to know whether it's the issue with drainage or with the pipe.

Volume I would think, not pressure.
Where does volume come from? Lol people are always trying to make a distinction but they are related.

Unless they are dumping 5 gal buckets to get the volume they need, we need to know the pressure to have a rough idea of the volume.

Unless the pressure is really really low I doubt this is the problem. But it's an opening question to get an idea of the situation.

I read the question as being about why the water pressure is low. Whether the drainage is fast or slow - it will have NO effect on incoming water pressure.

I think this person is asking if the drainage problem could be related to low water pressure. Not the reverse.

I belive they noticed low water pressure and the neighbors said they have drainage problems.

DFU=GPM

It's not likley the cause of this person's problem. I ask the question to rule it out in their mind. No need to make it into something it's not.
