Question about Hansgrohe Plumbing
Identify the source from hot or from cold or from both. cold only suggests you may have a rusty water service supply pipe. this pipe is outside underground. hot would indicate corrosion at your water tou may have a copper system but it;sheater. both hot and cold would possibly indicate galvanized nipples were used to stub out of the wall under your sink, and are experiencing ionic transfer...or electrolysis...if its your bathtub you are talking about and not your sink faucet,,,,the color is very common and is occurring because your tub spout and showerhead were piped with galvanized pipe. a lot of plumbing shops pre-fab their tub valves with galvanized pipe and supply the valve water with copper tubing....just grin and bear it if so. one more idea if it is your faucet and it occurs on both hot and cold use...check the screen in your faucet aerator...the little chrome (or brass) tip that screws on and off the end of the spout on the faucet. good luck and if you see corrosion on any supply connections...handle with care...the pipe or fitting could be very brittle or soft...and break apart...causing a flood....make sure to know where and how to turn your house water supply off before going beyond a visual inspection of your plumbing..orange water indicates corrosion of steel pipe 99% of the time and bkue water indicates corrosion of copper pipe 99% of the time.

You didn't mention the source of the water. Is this a well or connected to a water system? If is a well you might need to install a filter on the line coming into the house. Does the orange water stain or have any odor? It is possible that there is a loose connection somewhere allowing sediment to leach into the line when there is no active flow.

Rust is usually a sign of galvanized pipe mixed with copper pipe incorrectly.Could be the pipe nipple used for the tub spout connection to the valve.You could change it to a brass nipple might be the problem

SOURCE: after installing a grohe faucet
It air bubbles in the water giving the appearance of cloudy.
It would seem that the aerator in the new faucet is particularly efficient.
If you take a glass of "cloudy" water and let it stand for a few mins, you should find it clears up nicely as the air slowly bleeds out through the top.
