Question

black water


today i was about to take a shower, when I open the hot water in my bathtub I was what it look like dirt. (not much but enough for me to see it) Do I need to drain my water heater? this a two year old water heater. I did drain it about a year ago.

If you have a water company and not a well, check to see if they were flushing the lines
That'll make it pretty nasty
