The galvanized pipe leading to the tub spout will rust and cause brown water. Mixing copper and galvanized is very hard on the galvanized pipe. Sometimes you can remove the faucet plate and replace the rusting section of pipe to the spout with copper pipe, if the hole for the faucet is large enough. Terry

: I recently remodeled my bathroom and replaced the old shower fixture with a new one. I used galvanized metal pipes for the water direction to the tub faucet. Now after I do not use the tub spout for a day, the first quart of water comes out brown. I am guessing that this is rust. Am I correct? and what are my options or hazzards for the bathers. The fixture is completely enclosed and will be very difficult to replace. any information would be helpful.thanks.
