What Your Water Color Can Tell You

Yellow, Red, and Orange Water

When water is coming out of your tap red, yellow, or orange in color, it usually indicates that there is rust in the pipes. This can happen when the water is not being used for a while and the iron in the pipes begin to rust. If you notice your water is discolored, you should let it run for a few minutes until it clears up. If it does not clear up after running the water for a few minutes, you should contact your local water company near you. They will be able to help you determine if there is anything else going on that could be causing the issue.

Blue or Green Water

If you’ve ever seen blue or green water coming out of your faucet, it’s most likely due to copper corroding in your pipes. Copper is a common material used in plumbing, and while it’s resistant to many different substances, over time it can start to break down. This usually happens when water with high acidity levels comes into contact with the copper, causing a chemical reaction. The resulting blue or green water is harmless, but it can be a sign that your pipes need to be replaced. If you’re concerned about your water quality, it’s always best to consult with a professional plumber near you. They can test your water and give you advice on the best course of action.
