red tinged water w/ black particles

2nd bath (3 kids) has red tinged water with black particles settled on bottom. Thought it was old water heater, drained, same problem.
Replaced steam boiler and at same time decided to replace 50 gal. with high cap. 80 gal. 3 KIDS.
Same problem exists!
It appears to be only in the HOT water. The cold is clear and particle free?
My plumber said that some water on LONG ISLAND NY have high mineral content that reacts to the heat in the water heater? He suggests a filter on the OUT side of the hot water heater?
