Why do I have rusty water?
Discolored water can be caused by many things. Check the unsoftened water in the home closest to the point of entry, this would be indicative of the water the utility is providing from the main. Any water in the home that is treated and discolored, would be an internal plumbing concern. There could be a disturbance in the water system (hydrant flushing, new water main construction in the area, illegal use of a fire hydrant). Combination plumbing (copper and galvanized) in your home can also cause the problem.
