I’ve never heard of anything like this question from a first floor owner; it sounds like something bizarre is going on with their incoming plumbing. If anyone has any advice for them, please put it in the comments
I’ve been having this issue since moving in mid-winter, and I’m trying to find the root cause:
When I turn on the shower, the water flows clear and hot. However, when I try to use the bathtub spout, the water turns brown and runs cold. I replaced my water heater, and the bathtub is the only faucet with this issue.
Anyone know what the cause might be, or has anyone had a similar issue?
