There would be a certain amount of pressure loss (head) due to the height of water which acts downward with gravity (weight). When the water is flowing, there is another loss due to friction in the pipes, and the pressure drop depends on the length of pipe. If the water velocity is low, then the pressure drop is likely not very significant.
