My water is discolored. Why is it brownish in color? Why is it whitish color?

Category: Water

A brownish tint in your water could be caused by several things but is normally attributed to iron in the water. This normally comes from the piping within the building as from old galvanized lines.

A white or milky color in the water would normally be caused by a release of oxygen in the water after it is drawn from the faucet. To determine this, draw a glass of water and let it set for a few minutes. Watch to see if the color slowly disappears from the bottom to the top.
