New faucet

I recently installed a new faucet and the water comes out "rusty" every time we use the sink. How can I stop this?

Cool

If that's the only place that you're getting rusty water, there must be a galvanized steel pipe in the supply line somewhere that is causing it.
Did you use any galvanized pipe or fittings?

Unfortunatley that is not the only place I am getting rusty water. The water in the kitchen sink also starts out 'rusty'.

Sounds like pieces of galvanized somewhere in the supply lines.
Find it and replace it with CPVC plastic line and fittings or copper.
Good Luck!
Mike
