I left for vacation and when I returned, the water coming out of my faucets was brown when it first came out of the pipe. While the water eventually became "clear" for the most part, My Brita water filter did not totally remove all the rust, and the water in the pitcher has been a bit cloudy.
Curious as to whether this water was safe to drink or not, I searched online and found the answer. Is rusty water safe to drink? The short answer is yes, unless you have an extremely rare condition where iron accumulates in the body organs.
