I have a new tub and we are starting to notice small specks of what
looks like rust. Brillo cannot get it off nor any other cleaners we
have tried. How is it possible that we have rust in our plastic tub?
How do you remove it?
If it is city water, chances are the rust is coming from the main lines and
it can be miles away. Replacing the house pipes will not make any
difference. Get a rust-sediment filter. Alternate is to replace the
lines in the town. Budget $1million a year for a good replacement program.
You need to tell us more about your setup..
1) What type of pipes are in the house?
2) What type of water are you on?
If you want to test the water take a white plastic bucket and pout some
water in it and let it site for a few days, did it dis-colour the bucket?
