Please help!
Last night we cleared up the main drain. However, when we turn on the hot water, brownish hot water kept on flowing. I left it running for at least 30 minutes, but no luck. The cold water is clear but not the hot water. I looked at the hot water boiler and it does not indicate anything wrong. What can I do? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

It could be the inside of the tank is rusting away, and you will need to get it replaced soon.

Normally the hot water is fine. And another
question. How often am I suppose to drain some of the water out of the boiler and clear the main drain?
Thank you very much Plumber2000.
