Indoor Plumbing Filter: Help me understand a valve on my hot water line and how to stop a leak. [more inside]

Without warning my hot water (and hot water only) has suddenly started running brown, and when I drain a tub of it silt like material is left in the bottom. I suspect it's rust.

Also: my family has been showing and bathing in this, could it be harmful in any way?
