Kinda sucks no hot water for dishes and cant shower
Not sure sure of cause for the rusty water, but I recently had hot water with gas put not on hydro.
Turned out the over heat safety had been tripped (shown in picture) and the switch was broken in the off position.
New switch (not expensive) and voila!
