In response to Re: Yellow Water
It is probably rust and there is no way to de-rust the pipe since it is rusting because the interior coating of the pipe has dissolved. Not using the water increases the problem since the water in the pipe will accumulate rust rather than having it flushed out before it reaches a noticeable level.

: All of the water in our building is coming out with a yellow tint to it. I believe that it it due to rust. I'm looking for a good way to clean or de-rust the pipes without having to completly redue the plumbing. The plumbing does not get used every day in this particular building, so I don't know is that has anything to do with the problem. Also is there any other possibility as to what would be causing the problem? Thanks.
