You will experience discolored water during the flushing effort and we apologize for this inconvenience.

In the event that you experience a prolonged period of discolored water, run numerous cold water taps for 5 to 10 minutes or until it clears up.

Following the completion of this system-wide maintenance we recommend you flush your hot water tank.

Read on for the detailed schedule.
