Why Is Brown Water Coming Out of My Faucet? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your tap water is discolored, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

You got up early this morning to head over to Weedon Island for some fishing before the day got too hot. But when you went to brush your teeth, the tap water was brown.

There are several possible reasons for the water coming out of your taps to be discolored.

“The most likely culprit is rust leeching from an aging galvanized iron pipe,” according to home fixit expert Bob Vila. “If you mainly notice the discoloration first thing in the morning—or after being away from your home for a while—chances are it’s a supply line. That’s especially true if only one faucet in your home is spewing the brown stuff.”

Another possible culprit is your water heater. The clue – the discolored water only appears when you’re using the hot water. If so, your hot water heater could be rusty and need to be replaced. 

If that’s the case, you need to call a reliable plumber like the trusted plumbing specialists at Billy the Sunshine Plumber. Billy Sunshine can take a look at your plumbing system, diagnose the problem and get it fixed.

But, before you call Billy the Sunshine Plumber, call your city or county government – whichever has control of your water system – to check and see if others are having the same problem or if something is wrong with the municipal water system that’s causing the water to be discolored. If that’s not an issue, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
