Why Is My Water Discolored?

Water Quality Expertise in Simi Valley

Are you tired of water discoloration? Sick of seeing that funky brown or green tint every time you turn on the spout? Don’t be alarmed, there’s a perfectly logical explanation.

Reasons Your Water Is Discolored

  • There’s a Problem in the Water Main: Minerals, debris and rust builds up in all water mains eventually, giving water that unhealthy brown color. If you see this discolored water coming out of your tap, there’s a good chance there’s a temporary problem with the local water supply network, probably caused by construction or main breaks. Refrain from drinking the water, and if the coloring doesn’t go away quickly, report the issue to your local municipality and call for professional water analysis.
  • Your Pipes are Damaged: As pipes break down overtime, rust will accumulate inside them. When too much rust accumulates, it may become dislodged and start entering your water supply. If this happens, you will want to hire an experienced technician to replace the necessary pipes for you.
  • Your Pipes Have Recently Been Replaced: Although new pipes should be less likely to rust and dispense discolored water, pressure in pipes can change during repairs. This in turn may dislodge rust and other sediment. If this happens, know that long-term issues are unlikely, and it shouldn’t be long before your pipes are running smoothly again.
  • Copper or Brass Has Entered Your Water Supply: While these last few scenarios all focus on brown rust water, copper plumbing or brass fittings may turn your water a greenish blue color when they enter your water supply. The fix in these instances is fairly similar to other rust-related issues and will require standard pipe repairs and replacements.
  • There Is Mold In Your Water: This issue is more serious. If black or dark-colored water starts coming out of your sink, there’s a good chance your pipes have mold growing inside them. Call a plumber immediately if this happens, and do not, under any circumstances, drink the water.
  • Algae/Other Living Organisms In Your Water: While not as toxic as mold, algae and other living organisms that enter your water supply can still lead to discoloration and may turn your water a green or even pink color. While there will always be a certain number of microorganisms living in your water, anything growing in your pipes should be dealt with, even if it’s mostly harmless.
