In The Middle Of Water Change

Bettanewb

The title says it I'm in the middle of water change. I was just turning on the water to start refilling my tank when my water turned brown on me.

I'm not sure what to do.
There isn't enough water in the tank right now to run my filter.

I'm so lost right now.

I just asked my neighbour to check her water and it's the same way

You probably should call the water department to see if they are doing any kind of flushing of the system. If they are it takes some time to run the brown stuff out of the system.

Is there w way you can put them in a smaller tank or tub that is low enough for the filter to catch the water until everything is resolved? Like moving them into a plastic shoe box sized tub.

Let the cold water run for a few minutes and keep doing this once every hour
don't use warm water because the brown water is gonna get in your hot water tank
One the hour that the water changes back to normal, wait another hour before using that water for the tank just to be safe because sometimes it's harmless rust or but could be something more important like mineral leakage that the tank won't like

Thanks so stressed out right now with the filters not running.

Run you filters in a small container of tank water.
