Don’t have concern if the water comes out off-color once in a while, as this usually just means there’s air in the water reserve. If you see particles settling in your glass, we suggest you have your boiler examined.

Water that’s any other color can be dangerous to your body. Below are a variety of situations that can cause your water to be discolored:

  • Brown, red or yellow—This is often the result of a water main break in your community. It can also mean your pipes are old or rusty.

Long-term exposure has been linked to critical health problems in individuals, including intestinal illnesses, cancer and seizures.
