Accordingly, why is my sink water not cold?
If there's no cold water in the house at all, then the shut-off valve under each sink becomes less of a possible culprit. This valve is located under the sink; you'll see two knobs near the pipes leading to the hot and cold water lines. Try turning the cold water knob and seeing if the water starts up again.
Also, how does hot water come out of the tap? When you turn on a faucet, water comes out immediately. Faucets are supplied with water from two different water lines, one cold and one hot. The hot water line usually comes from a heat source called a hot water heater. The maximum temperature of the water is controlled by a setting on the hot water heater.
Similarly, you may ask, how hot does water come out of the faucet?
The hot water takes like five minutes to get to my kitchen faucet. Once it does get there, though, it's scalding hot.

Why is there no water coming out of my taps?
If there's no water in the house but your stopcock is open and your neighbours are not experiencing any problems, take a look at your cold water cistern. The ball valve may be stuck, which will have caused the cistern to empty. The cold water cistern should fill up and your taps should start working again.
