|In response to Re: Brown Water|
: I recently replaced both thermostats on my hot water heater and now whenever we have gone awhile without using any, when someone turns on the hot water the water will run brown for 10-15 seconds. This happens on all of our water faucets. I've drained the water heater but this hasn't helped. Suggestions? We didn't have this problem before the thermostats were replaced.
Is this a Well or City water? Flush the tank out. This is probably rust and crud accumulations. Tanks periodically need some maintenance, also your tank could be rusting within, due to maybe old age creeping up on it, Good luck, Hube
