If the plumbing in your house is old, it is probably rusty water pipes or rust from within the Hot Water heater. Des Perado

MY upstairs water is working fine, why do you ask?

Rain disturbes the silt at the bottom and causes it to rise in the water amking the murky-brown colour.

'Brown' may be caused by a number of things. Most likely cause is iron in your water, which is very common.

The flakes of gold are more dense than water, therefore, it will sink to the bottom and then the water can be carefully poured out

A blocked pipe. The water can not go down the pipe, so it comes out in your sink.

Air in the water lines to the upstairs. Not enough water pressure.

Either the cold water froze or someone shut the cold water riser to the upstairs floor.

Sounds like you have a water leak somewhere. It could be from a roof leak, or maybe an upstairs commode, or maybe a water pipe, in your wall, broke.

These black flakes are flea dirt or (poop). Your cat or kittens has fleas and these flakes are the poop.

Unscrew the aerator from the end of the faucet where the water comes out and clean the screen. Sediment build up slows the flow.

Check the upstairs taps for blockage in aerator or internally.

An acid/water mix causes the steel to rust faster by eating away at the oxidized outer layer of metal. As this happens the outer layer flakes off and rusts, as the outer layer flakes off the newly exposed metal then begins the same process. Without the acid the water will still cause it to rust, but not as quickly.

Skidmarks account for 84.7% of all brown marks in a toilet bowl . Followed in a distant second place by Iron in your water.

It turns brown because of a chemical in the bleach, most likely chlorine(Cl) or ammonia. when the water mixes with the certain chemical, it causes a chemical reaction that changes the color; in your case brown. hope this helped :)

No, snow is flakes of solidified water (ice).
