In response to Re: Water turns rusty color.
Some water companies add a chelating compound to
suspend iron particles when iron is plentiful in
the water. This keeps the water clear instead of
brown. However, the effect of the chelating
compound decreases as the temperature is increased
So if you recently increased your hot water
temperature setting, this could be the problem,i.e.
more iron is settling out. Another possibilty is
that the water company cut down on the amount of
chelating compound they are adding. Call them and
ask.
