How to Handle Water Discoloration

Have you ever wanted a glass of water or prepared to step into a shower only to notice a muddy-colored liquid come from the tap or shower head?

As disgusting as it may sound, water discoloration is quite a common issue. The discoloration may be caused by rust within the water. While it isn’t necessarily harmful, the brown, orange or red colors can cause stains on clothing – in addition to tub and sink stains if they’re coming from the bathroom.

In diagnosing the problem, it’s best to turn the faucet off after noticing the discoloration. Go to your main faucet and run water in a bowl. You can detect whether or not your plumbing is a problem by determining if the water is clear or muddy with the main faucet.

If your water is clear, you may need to call a professional plumber, as it could be a pipe issue. If the water is muddy, this may be an issue for your local water department. Talk with your neighbors, as this could be a problem for the entire block or apartment complex.
