New bathroom, rusty water from tub spout
I hope there is a plumber out there that can shed some light on this ... we just had our bathroom remodeled. We have very nice Jado fixtures in the tub/shower. The problem is, when you first turn the taps on, for the tub or the shower, the water comes out rusty then runs clean. The plumber doesn't know what the problem is but the tile guy thinks it's because the plumber used steel nipples and that is causing any water that stands in the pipes to get rusty. He thinks the plumber should have used copper or brass nipples. Help!
