    Default Dark sediment in water in bathtubs--getting worse

    I rent and have kids. EVERY time we turn on the water in their bathtub, water has a brown color and dark sediment in it. I have to let it run for 3 or 4 minutes, turn off water, rinse out tub and then start their bath, and theres STILL some in the water with them. Now it is starting in my ohter tub. No problems in sinks-kitchen or bath. What is this and do I need to be concerned for health reasons? Is there a way to clean pipes?

    Is this well or city water? Sounds like iron and/or manganese but is only determined by testing the water.

    Do you notice this from any other faucets or toilets?
