Filled a jet tub yesterday. Water came out pretty brown. Sinks in the house a little brown as well. Filled the second tub, water still brown.
House has 1997 water heater, and water softener system. House has been vacant, heat on, water off for quite a few months.
Disclaimed the softener, but research online makes me think that it may be the source of the problem. I would have thought with all the water I used in the house any rust from the HWH would have been cleaned out.
The client contacted the Softener supplier. Unit upgraded in 2012.
Told the client to have a plumber in to see if they could ID the issue.
If it were mine, I’d close the bypass to separate out the softener and see if that makes a difference.
Just for sh*ts and giggles, and for the educational aspect, anyone have any ideas or knowledge to share. My expertise is not water softeners!
