Thank you for your question. There should not be an issue with the tub spout assembly if the water runs brown. We do recommend to flush the valve body and lines to make sure no debris is causing the brown water. To flush, turn the water off at your shut off valves. Remove the handle, remove the sleeve assembly, unscrew the bonnet nut. Pull the cartridge assembly straight out. The cartridge can be cleaned by rinsing this out thoroughly in another sink. Once everything is removed, turn the water supply back on. This will flush the water straight through the open valve body. Keep this on for a good 30-45 seconds. Turn the water off and reinstall parts. If you should need further assistance, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at email@example.com.
