The Problem: You get home from a long summer vacation and head to the restroom to take a shower. You see brown, rusty water flowing! There can be a few causes to rusty colored water. For example, the city may be doing some trench work in your neighborhood which requires the water to be shut off. Upon turning the water back on, some debris might be flushed out through your water line. Another cause could be rusty sediment settling in the hot water tank due to old age.


The Solution: Run all water fixtures in your home for a few minutes to flush out all debris.
