Well, the village water crew dug up under the curb to locate a hole in the main supply line, they patched it.

My water was looking cleaner after that ordeal, water ran free into the street for over 3hrs. before it was turned off. A few days later, brown water again ! Brown water comes from the wh drain, the hot water in sinks and tub, even the toilet ! (That’s strange, only cold water goes to toilet.) The hardness lovel on softner is at 20, down from 25) The first 22″ of the anode looks good,(wh is now 2months old.)

Would changing the anode to a aluminum/zinc help? The wife is getting real tired of the brown water ! Any suggestions ?
