I have recently moved into my new apartment. I have a noticed a periodic red stain near the drain as well as on the tub wall. It almost looks as if someone has suirted a red dye in the tub and around this region. There is no method to this madness. it doesn't appear the day after taking a shower, it seems somewhat random. It is not a heavy pretty much rubs out with water. the stain has no odor, nor is there one coming from the drain itself. No other drain in the house (i.e. the kitchen and the bathroom sink) has occured this problem.

I need help...this is driving me crazy.

Apparently there is a steel pipe for the tub spout that is shooting out a little rust when it is first turned on.
See if the apartment maintenance people will change it out for a copper or CPVC plastic pipe for the tub spout.
Should solve the problem.
Good Luck! Mike
