rust in pipes??
We recently had an addition put onto our home with a 2nd floor bathroom directly above the original bathroom that still remains. Yesterday, after the hot water was running a while, I noticed that the water was tinted brown in the shower, then in the sink as well. When I mentioned it to my grandmother (who's house it was originally) - she stated that it has happened before. All of the research I have been doing, tells me it could be old water heater. But ours is brand new. I am thinking that it may be the pipes leading into the house from the ground. Because it happens in both the original bathroom and the new one. When I run the cold water, it dosn't happen as much, mostly the hot. Sound familiar to anyone.
