    The faucet didn't cause that result. I suspect you shut off the water to the entire house, disturbing the inside of your existing piping , loosening any particles and flowing out.

    Have youy checked the rest of the house to see if you get the same rusult in your bathroom sink and tub??

    Flushing your water lines for about 10 minutes or so. As you use it through the day the color will get better.

    Did you replace the supply lines to the faucet.

    I know one homeowner that started using bottled water after the kitchen faucet was replaced.

    I removed the old plastic reinforced supply lines and replaced with new braided stainless and the taste problem went away.
