      I had a discoloration of my hot water (redish color). My house is
      only 8 years of age and piped with
      copper piping throughout the house.
      The water became clearer after a while
      The cold water remained clear. What
      was the Root Cause of this?
      Thanks.

      I have the same problem and have been told that it is sediment in the tank. I tried to flush it out by draining the tank and refilling a couple of times but it did not cure the problem. I plan on replacing my hot water heater since it is now about 13 years old. Maybe someone else can give you more direct advice.
