Frothy water...

Set up my TT and when I went to use my hot water I noticed that there was a froth on the water, I threw it out and refilled it again with the same froth, I refilled it with cold water and it was fine. I have not tried it again since, it was a nice clean froth, but I just did not want to use it. The water is from a connection provided by the CG. Thanks for any replies.

Sounds like air in the hot water tank turn it on and let run a few minutes until the
water is normal problem should go away.

That would be my guess also. Open a hot water handle on the sink and it it run awhile. shut it off and then open the hot on any other sinks one at a time. This should make sure you purge the air out of lines and the tank. If it continues, let us know.

We had the same thing going on after dewinterizing in March down in Gold Canyon. It continued to some degree all month. Hookup to city water seemed tight.

Open your pressure relief valve on the water heater. Not all the way, but enough to let the air out along with some water. I've had it go on for months until I let the water run out of the pressure relief valve to purge the air.
