dogs are agitated and water is still brown cold from faucet- hot is ok?
 Quoting: AKObserver


Hot water is coming from your water heater which has a large tank. It will take a while before the 'dirty' water fills the tank and you begin to get it out of the tap on the hot side, if at all.

Water is drawn off the top of the hot water tank. So when the dirty water goes into the tank and sits for awhile, the particulates will settle to the bottom. If you don't ever come close to completely draining the tank you may never see 'dirty' water at the tap.

That said, you will want to make sure and drain the tank after the sediment clears. After the water on the cold side has cleared, you'll need a garden hose and some time. There will be a faucet at the bottom of the water heater. Shut off the water heater, run your hot tap, shower would work best, until you get cold water. This will help reduce the pressure from the heated water. Once you have cold water running, shut of the water inlet to the water heater, crack open the faucet and let the water drain. Keep the hot water output open on the water heater and open the hot side on the tap furthest from your water heater. This will break the vacuum and allow the water to drain.

Hopefully you have a floor drain nearby. After all the water has drained, turn cold water back on, with drain faucet still open, and let water drain out for a few minutes. Once you no longer see sediment close the drain faucet, turn water heater back on and make sure inputs and outputs are open. This process should be done annually, regardless, to extend the life of your water heater, more so if your water normally has high amounts of sediment.
 Quoting: Sol Neman


Also, prepper tip, since your water heater holds large amounts of water. If your water source becomes tainted, and you want to make sure you have potable water on hand, immediately shut off the cold water intake to water heater. You have now sealed off the tainted water. When you need water for whatever reason, use that same drain faucet at the bottom to draw some water off. You may need to crack open a faucet in the house to break the vacuum and get it to drain. If you don't immediately shut of the heat, make sure you do so after you have drained some of the water to avoid burning up the heater elements. Keep in mind if you open the drain while the water is still hot inside, it will be under pressure and can cause scalding.

What Parents Need to Know About Enterovirus

The enterovirus, also known as EV-D68, was first identified in the U.S. in 1962 and then lay dormant for some 30 years. Since 2008, small clusters — ranging from four to 30 cases — have periodically cropped up throughout the country but none with the vengeance of the recent outbreak. Kansas City, Missouri, has been particularly hard-hit, with hundreds of children hospitalized at Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics. Mary Anne Jackson, the hospital’s director of infectious diseases, shares her thoughts on what you need to know about the virus.

 Quoting: AKObserver


The earthquake either broke a water main and you're now getting sediment in the municipal water supply or the water storage tank your water is coming from was jostled and all the sediment that was settled at the bottom was stirred up and sent out into the system. Could be both.

Water mains breaking and allowing sediment in happens frequently where I live during the winter due to the ground shifting from hard freezes. I'd imagine earthquakes, especially 6+ mag, could do the very same thing.

Landlord's...something that I do miss from renting! Let them deal with it, if they don't want to it's their loss of money when it comes to replacing the water heater. Avoid washing clothes, especially whites, until the water has cleared.

Look not from the mind, but from the soul. For the Life that is coming is already before us, waiting to open up the world. Just look more closely.

You're welcome. Being in the country, if you're on well water or a cistern, same concept as above, just a much smaller system. I would recommend drinking bottled water or boiling the water out of your tap and draining it through cheesecloth or some other type of filter. Who knows what's in that sediment.

Someday I'll get to move outside of town, saving the dollars right now to buy some land. For now I'll have to deal with being on the edge of town.

Hope you feel better soon.

You will be in my prayers, heart and thoughts WA. I hope that everything goes well with your surgery and that you have a quick recovery. You are very much loved and many of us will have you in our prayers. You are such a strong woman that I imagine it is difficult for you to be in recovery mode...just resting and taking care of you. But please do so. Recover fully and come back stronger. As a mother I know it can be strange and even difficult to not be the care taker, and to be the one being taken care of. It just doesn't "feel right" to us. But soak it up. Enjoy the feeling of your family giving back to you what you have always selflessly given to them and others. Recover Angel. More people need you than you even know. : )
