Check if your pipes are connected in one continous system.
Also check if you are pumping enough water to meet the demand.
I hope you have already figured this out but water wont flow if you dont have any pumping stations, Water towers, and/ or Desalinization plants.
Pumping stations need to be right next to a body of fresh water.
Water towers can be built anywhere.
Desal plants need to built next to a body of saltwater.
Make sure you locate these structures away from pollution because pollution will kill your water output by as much as 75%
Water structures also need power and connect the water sturctures to your pipesytem.

Your best bet it to put as many water pipes in as you can and then either use water towers, make a connection to your neighbor, or pumping stations. Keep in mind, for a large city you need a lot of everything.
