Causes of hot water discolouration

Ask a Plumber

After being on vacation my hot water is discoloured (brown) for a while then clears up. Does this mean I need a new electric hot water tank? I have been in this house for nine and half years and the house was eighteen months old when I moved in so the tank is 11 years old.

Thank you for answering this question.
