You don’t, by any chance, have galvanized plumbing, do you? Galvanized anywhere in the system could cause rusty water. Also, just for the heck of it, drain a gallon out of the water heater drain valve and see what color that is.
Also, since you’re softening, make sure you are not softening to zero hardness.
