when I turn on the cold water tap the lights dim. What could be the cause?

    Two most likely causes:

    1) You have an electrical water pump in the house which is drawing too much current.

    2) There's a short between a copper water pipe and your electricity.

    Either way - get it checked by an electrician.

    Are you receiving well water? If so the well pump is causing the drop.

    Coincidence. Water tap has nothing to do with electrical.
