No. Pascal's Principle states that a pressure applied to a fluid system at rest is felt throughout the entire system. This means that, regardless of pipe diameter, city pressure is felt everywhere. Decreasing pipe diameter will only reduce the flow rate of the water, due to more head loss when the water moves. more
