Meh.  It's what happens when you don't move the sediment in your hot water heater for a while.

Every 6 months or so, I have to drain the hot water heater, because we get a build-up of sediment.  If we don't do that, when they flush the fire hydrant outside of the house the back-pressure seems to stir it up and we've got brown hot water for a couple days.

Well, who wouldn't want a whole tub full of Sex Panther?

Oh come on Subbywho believes anyone in  West Virginia ever takes a bath.  Sheesh.

You've got a bathtub *and* running America Juice, both cold AND hot?? You're not poor. No benefits for you. We need to cut benefits to finance some tax breaks for job creators like Freedom Industries!
 
2014-01-14 11:12:17 AM  

Oh noes! For a short period of time, there was some slight sediment, as expected, in my water! I must sue!

 
2014-01-14 11:13:01 AM  
Just keep it running for a bit. Once the old water has been flushed from the tubes things should go back to normal.

Tubgirl?

Eh, after a few hits off the meth pipe, they'll probably think they have RC Cola on tap and drink it straight from the faucet until it runs clean.
 
2014-01-14 11:13:46 AM  
put one of the kids in it and see if they gain some super powers ?
 
2014-01-14 11:13:48 AM  
Yes, that's how water looks after sitting still in the pipes for a week.

This is a sign of how cushy the average American's life is. We're not used to interruptions in service, so we don't know what the normal consequences of ordinary failures are anymore. That means we tend to over-react on the rare occasion that we actually experience them. This wouldn't have even phased a Depression-era American. Today it's national news.

Doesn't matter.

Lawsuits inbound, which is good.  The threat of the almighty Lawsuit is what keeps corporations in line, not regulatory agencies!

My grandmother lived in West Virginia.  We went to her house at least once a year to visit.  I remember numerous times sand coming out of the spigot, and you had to run it a few seconds to get it out.  Always thought that was weird, never seen it anywhere else or since.

To be honest, it makes the Soylent Green taste funny, though.

They should take showers, baths use more water. You'd think they'd learn how to conserve after their ordeal, but no, because Murica.

I've used well water that wasn't much clearer than that. And I doubt that the chemicals everyone is worried about are colored. They should thank the chemical company for helping to clear out their water pipes. Look at all that scuzz scoured out of there.

Yes, but note how the right is always pushing for less regulation AND tort reform.

All the idio uh people calling that sediment from the hot water tank... do they normally piss into their water tanks, or is that just a West Virginia thing?
 
2014-01-14 11:18:57 AM  
That reminds me.

What do kittens and West Virginia girls have in common?

I am sure you'd be with with a chemical with unknown health consequences being in your water at parts per billion forever.

Remember for folks: paying for the consequences of your actions is just what we want for poor people, not job creators.  SSDD.

It's probably not something that affects homes everywhere. I get brown water when they flush the hydrants here. Our water mains were laid in the 60's. I bet it's less of an issue in newer areas with plastic pipes.

Point the first: I'm going to go ahead and suggest that most developed places in the world don't consider a poisonous water supply and "ordinary failure".

Point the b: "People living in destitution and on the brink of complete ruin wouldn't mind this" isn't exactly a convincing argument for writing it off as a non-event.

It's January the fourteenth. Surely the annual bathing was all taken care of in the first week after New Year's.

I just got a new water heater yesterday, and that's pretty similar to what my bathtub looked like.

Granted, it was only rust from disturbed pipes, or what have you.

Hot and cold running Brawndo. God bless America!
 
2014-01-14 11:24:13 AM  
I filled a bathtub in a hotel in The Phillippines when i visited there a couple years back and the water looked pretty much the same as in TFA. It was probably why i was advised before i went there to not drink the water.

They're both slaughtered by Koreans? Or is that just kittens and Virginia Tech girls....

I like the cut of your jib.

Good to see somebody talking sense.  It's clear that this whole "scandal" is just the poors complaining because they are wanting free things like free water.  If Freedom Industries wasn't subject to such heavy regulatory burden this never would have happened in the first place.

I strongly agree with you, to help Freedom Industries get back on their feet after this tragedy to their profits, they clearly need tax cuts.

I guess don't  dump industrial chemicals into the water supply and you won't have to worry about it, farking dummy.

There's a difference between something being "a non-event" and something being "national news". A poisonous water supply is "national news". Normal rust/sediment in one person's home following a massive flush of the entire system is a "non-event". Additionally, the failure I was referring to was the sediment, not the poison, which was certainly not a normal event. The linked "article" was not actually about the poisonous water, but the sediment after the flushing process.

I've been out of my house for 10+ days on vacation and have never returned to water that looked like that.
