Default Black Water from Jacuzzi Faucet

Can anyone tell me why I get black water from the Jacuzzi faucet? It's only been from the hot water side and only from the Jacuzzi faucet. All other water in the house is just fine! It the faucet that fills the tub. After a few minutes the black goes away. Then the water is clear to fill the tub. I also notice small black particles on the bottom of the tub when this happens.

Most likly old iron pipes. The only way to fix it to replace it with something like Pex tubing.

More than likely this faucet get's used much less than other faucets in the home. That may be the reason. Are you on a well?

Yep, that would be it. The tub should have an access door on it. I assume its a jetted garden tub. Remove it and have a look inside. Depending on what you find you may even replace the steel pipe with a flexible faucet connector.
