I rent a home built in 1960 and my water is the color of light rusty-orange(faint to mild) for the first few moments after it has set for sometime, usually overnight or all day. My landlord assures me that it is harmless and siad he replaced old pipes w/ galvanized so it can't be rust. any ideas, I am worried and would like to hear any ideas on the subject. I also called water co. and they informed me that since the water main is not broken it is the responsibility of the owners. Thanks in advance....

Does this happen in all water taps and toilets or just a certain one? If it's only one, that pinpoints the problem to that fixture or piece of pipe. If it's ALL, then that excludes any one individual fixture.
