Why would water stop flowing and not return for ten minutes or more?

Your bladder may be empty or you have a case of "shy kidneys." But seriously, if the water in your home stops flowing intermittently, it's likely the water company's fault or, if you have a private well, there's a problem with your pump and pressure tank. Municipal water companies and utilities are notoriously unreliable and often don't inform users about interruptions due to maintenance. Also, during peak usage periods, water pressure can decrease markedly, sometimes necessitating localized shut-offs.
