Water pressure refers to the pressure of water in a system. In a home it will be 30-50 psi typically and this is governed by the municipal pressure or by a well tank.

Why does salt water boil at a lower temperature then tap water?

For the concept of vapour pressure and boiling. Vapour pressure of water is depend on temperature. At 100 oC, vapour pressure of water will be at the same as atmospheric pressure so it boil. Salt, is in solid state and virtually had no vapour pressure. Presence of salt mean the vapour pressure is diluted. For such solution to have vapour pressure of atmosphere, it require increase of Temperature from normal boiling point.

How does the sucking action of a straw work?

This is all thanks to Air pressure and water pressure. Lets say that you are drinking water from a glass with the help of a straw. When you suck at the straw, you are essentially drawing air out of the straw. This decreases air pressure which was in the straw right above the level of the water. In the mean time the air pressure around your glass of water is constantly pushing the drink level to go down. And the water pressure of your drink is pushing the water level to go up. Since you just helped decrease the air pressure in the straw, the water finds an outlet and thus goes up the straw till it reaches your mouth.

Why does lowered air pressure allow water to boil at room temperature?
